I'm grateful my husband decided he had enough with the NYC traffic and decided it was time to pack it in and retire.

 

Who knows what time he would have walked in the door last night if he were still working.

@I am still oxox

 

I am glad you are both ok.

Thought of you yesterday... DDs friend works in the building right at that intersection. They were on lockdown...very scary.

She made it home safely.

He was here for 7 years as a result of a diversification lottery program on a Visa....no vetting.  Sad day.

    I don’t understand.8 people were mowed down by a terrorist & you’re grateful that your husband didn’t come home late?

@phoenixbrd When we moved to the USA from Canada we had to go through a lot of hoops....almost gave up at times.We also had to be checked out by an immigration doctor and then expected to get more vaccinations that we didn't have records for.IThis was 17 years ago and I think the rules have relaxed a lot since that time.We have always appreciated the right to be here and are thankful.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

For this terrorist, we think we know the cause. For the Vegas terrorist, we still don't know the cause. I think these people are more than unhappy. There's definite brain malfunction.


With how thoroughly they're examining the Vegas shooter's brain, if there was any abnormality at all, they should find it.  As for this terrorist, we don't think we know the cause, we DO know the cause.  He left a note stating his loyalty to ISIS.

Due to the use of cars for terrorist activity, I heard one newscaster going on last night about the need to vet people renting cars now.

 

Seriously?  First of all, there's no need to rent when stealing a car/truck is not that difficult and secondly - I think there needs to be increased vetting all right, but not just of people trying to rent  cars.
