Something has to be done to stop these telephone poles and trees that keep jumping in front of cars speeding by. Maybe Chuck Schumer will introduce some new legislation to stop this trend.

Chucky will hold a Press Conference Sunday. He will also ask for an investigation into Issac. He feels we should have less hurricaines.
