    "Alcohol and speed are believed to be a factor in the crash," the department said in a news release.

    Wow... You mean drinking and snowmobiling isn't a good idea?

    From what I've read, Salerno was a passenger. So it's a little misleading to hang that "alcohol and speed" line out there in the report.

    "Alcohol use by the driver of Salerno's snowmobile and speed . . . " would have been better.

    Randy was a good guy and very well respected in Chicago. It's very tragic and yet another reason I'd never go near a snowmobile.
  6. True on all counts. What a waste.

    RIP Randy. Used to enjoy watching him on the noon news to catch up with what was going on in Chicago. Huge loss.

    True to form, Mizzou bashes Wisconsin. It IS in the South, you know.
