WATCH: Massive Sinkhole in Chicago Swallows Three Cars


NewsFeed

A sinkhole opened up in a street in Chicago’s South Side early Thursday morning large enough to engulf three cars and send one driver to the hospital, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Merko Krivokuca was driving his silver pickup down South Houston Avenue when the vehicle fell in to the 20-to-40-foot-wide sinkhole. His father said he was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital to be treated for some scratches. Two more cars also fell into the gaping hole, while a fourth was towed from the edge just in time.

Witnesses in the neighborhood told the Chicago Tribune that it sounded like a car accident.

Krivokuca was lucky enough to walk away with just scratches — unlike Tampa, Fla., resident Jeff Bush, 37, who was at home on Feb. 28 when a 60-foot-wide sinkhole opened beneath his bedroom, swallowing him whole. Engineering experts said it was too dangerous to try and retrieve Bush’s body; the…

THE “COWARD” SENATORS WHO VOTED “NO” ON GUN LEGISLATION


Some senators complained to the president about dealing with guns, gay marriage and immigration all at the same time.  If our US senators and representatives cannot multitask in the 21st Century, then it is time for the  American voter to cull the wheat from the chaff. We need new blood in Washington, DC. The old ways of governing the USA and leading the world no longer meet the challenges we face.

 “Vote the bums out!”

(Reuters) – In the end, nothing could persuade enough U.S. senators to approve the most significant gun legislation in two decades:

Not the carnage from Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were massacred by a gunman in December, igniting a national debate on gun control.

Not the impassioned pleas of Newtown survivors’ families, whose calls for expanded background checks for gun buyers so moved a pro-gun senator from West Virginia that he became their advocate.

And not the support of President Barack Obama, who was inspired by Newtown to make gun control the first major initiative of his second term.

The U.S. Senate‘s key vote on Wednesday wasn’t exactly a rejection of expanded background checks, gun-control advocates were careful to point out.

Most senators – 54 – approved the measure, which polls indicated was backed by more than 80 percent of Americans. But because Republicans threatened to use a filibuster to block any gun proposal that did not get 60 votes in the 100-member Senate, the plan to expand background checks to sales made online and at gun shows fell short.

And just like that, the most aggressive push for gun control in a generation did, too.
