wondering?

With all the recent accidents we keep hearing about, is it because we are looking harder? Has it always been like this, but because MH has grown and there are more members than 2 years ago and we have more eyes to let us in on what is going on around us? I know the internet plays a huge "real time" portal into the world. Just random thoughts...

I think you may be right because I haven't heard anything on the news about all these accidents, it's all been word of mouth or word of computer if you will. The computer is a great form of communication and the MH family tend to share info found around town so I think we are looking harder than before.

Well, I think it is more than looking harder.

The Harris County Sheriff's office publishes their press releases. The last four were all motorcycle related fatalities! Four fatalities in one week, and all motorcycle related. That doesn't even include the recent two fatalities involving Kokesh's crash in Ft.Bend county.

It is the news before it is on the computer. I usually hear about it first on the news and then research it on the computer.
