No problem. It turned out to be a very smart move.

3 periods in the middle of a sentence is called a pause, not the end of a sentence.

Simply pointing out the irony of an error filled post written by a northerner who implies northerners are smarter than southerners.
The southerners got it...I wrote it s l o w l y!

As a journalist I'll gently mention that it is indeed "the South." As a direction it is lower-case but as a region it is capitalized with the "the" preceding it not capitalized.

Carry on.

You should ask that of the poorly trained FL teenage driver. The most dangerous of all drivers.

They get a license a 16, and unlike other states have no limit to the number of passengers they can have in a car. They don't even take anything close to a real road test to see if they should even be behind the wheel of a car.

My favorites are the girls. When they aren't busy "texting" they drive staring straight ahead, they never look in their mirrors, or to their left or right.....just staring straight ahead. All that matters is what is in front of them, who needs a rear view mirror.

They also don't seem to the know 10 ft for every 10 miles of speed rule in FL.

That's it not a good idea to be too close to the car in front of you in case they have to brake for some reason and you can't stop in time. But if leave 50 ft between when you're doing 50mph, you might be able to slow down and avoid a crash.

I notice a pattern down here everytime there is a deadly crash involving teens driving reckless.

On the news we have crying friends, flowers at the crash site, counselors will be that school on Monday, etc. But no one ever addresses the problem or discusses raising the driving age to 17 or creating a curfew. In many states teens have to be off the road by 9pm.

I remember the one in Sarasota where four teens were killed. It was 5am and the driver was doing 100mph when he hit a wall. He was 18 and already had 3 speeding tickets. But all we here is "oh what a tragic accident".

Over and over again.
