Thanks Lew for your expert eyewitness commentary. It's fortunate that you can tell us what exactly occurred being that you were at the scene. A heart attack or some other health problem maybe? Think before you rant. Like the old saying goes: It's better to keep silent and let people think you might be a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. You sound just like one of the thousands of pissed off seniors, mad at the world living in Brick.
