HARTMAN: All right, knock it off!  Two hundred and fifty feet!  He was two hundred and fifty feet away and shooting at a moving target.  Oswald got off three rounds with an old Italian bolt action rifle in only six seconds and scored two hits, including a head shot!

Again, you don't have to be a Marine to do that, with a WW II main battle rifle that is designed to hit a head-sized target at about 200 yards with open sights.  If you start with a chambered round you only have to work the bolt twice.  Go to YouTube and you can see just how fast someone with experience can fire a bolt action rifle accurately.

There have been conspiracy theories concerning every president we've had since Washington.
William Henry Harrison might be the only exception.

Obama hid Harrison's overcoat.  :)

They are getting serious about widening I-10 to six lanes between SA and Houston. They will have about half of it completed when the current planned project finishes.

On the San Antonio side, it is slated to be widened to 3x3 to SH 130. (I did not list all projects, the post would have been too long.)

So that would leave 78 miles of 2x2 between Houston and San Antonio.

I really like it, though I wish the state ouline were slightly thicker.

Bigger issue is when you try to cram a two or three digit number in. Obviously the circle would have to become an oval or rounded rectangle, and then it wouldn't be as cool-looking.

I was honestly starting to wonder if they planned to sign GA 540 at all. Guess that answers that question.

I do love the classic inconsistency of signing GA 4 with US 1 but not signing GA 121 with US 25.

According to last monthís June 6 article, the Sampson County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution opposing upgrading the existing I-40 Exit 355 interchange for I-795ís connection to I-40, citing negative impacts to the Enviva plant. They want I-795 to follow a new alignment and link with I-40 at a new interchange south of Exit 355.

President St, a de facto southern extension of I-83, since the south end connection to I-95 was never built.  Thereís also portions of PA 12, the Warren St. bypass in Reading, that are full freeway.

Everything I needed to learn about Oswald I learned from Full Metal Jacket.

Why is the western part of the proposed freeway elevated?

Glad to see I-35 widened to Gainesville. I know I had heard they plan on widening it to 4x4 all the way to the Winstar casino eventually as part of their master plan. It included a realignment in the hilly section just south of the Oklahoma state line. I believe at some point they are supposed to do some work on red river bridges, but Iím unaware of the scope of that project.
