Good training for the Tour de Iraq.
Gosh, I'm sorry I got so alarmed, I just don't recall anything like this happening at any races, EVER. But hey, maybe you're right why don't we just shut this thread down, so that the shooter(s) doesn't think that they can get more attention by repeating that little act. We'll act like it never happened. For a moment I thought we were all heading straight toward Armageddon, Thanks for straightening me out. I don't know what came over me!Ninety5rpm said:"What's this world coming to?" inquires the title of this thread, rhetorically suggesting whatever it is coming to is not good.
Meh. These kind of incidents, are, unfortunately, par for the course in the history of humanity. There is nothing really new or different here, nor is this any kind of indicator of where the world is going.
This is a case of fairly typical moronic punks engaging in a particularly stupid and dangerous prank, this time in context that is getting world focus. Let's not blow things out of proportion.
