    Why

    Why do some people on this forum have to be just plain nasty. It's ok if you feel that way about someone I hope it made you feel better to post such an unkind remark on this forum.

    Yeah I didn't mean to make it sound nasty. I just think it's too bad to have a job where what you do is so irreplaceable that no one else can step in and do it. I suppose that is good "job security" and if you love doing it, so be it, hey it's YOUR job. It would be kind of neat to have to go "intercept" your crew at some odd location of the country. Sounds like he got the "bulk" of the rally in, just not the grand finale and drawings.
    I never really got the impression he was looking for pity.

    What is that quote? Something like for Evil to triumph all it takes is good men remaining silent. I'm so proud that on this forum bad manners are called out. No sitting around with popcorn boxes waiting to see what happens.

    Thank you!!!

    Tell me what I misinterpreted.

    I'm sure the victims families were a little more inconvenienced about the whole situation than a guy missing a day of a motorcycle rally to report to his job.
