  1. Here we go again! Another motorcyclist killed or injured, presumably because of some stupid antic by the guy driving the bike. And, yesterday, on Sahara, east of the Boulevard, I witnessed another nut on a bike, weaving in and out of traffic and going nowhere by doing it. I swear, some of these guys never learn and are their own worst enemies.
