Christine's Back...  Christine's Back... 

So it’s finally happened. I managed to get pulled over by the cops in Virginia. Surprisingly it wasn’t for speeding, but for the driver’s side stoplight not working. This is weird, because it’s an LED, and the marker lights are the same LED array (and work just fine). Take it home, and clean the connections, and it…

Hopefully Amagasaki Motor and Flavien got through Typhoon Jebi better than Kansai airport did, as a fuel tanker to brake loose and collided with the road and rail bridge linking the airport to the mainland, stranding 3,000.
