Well I hope there was a stop sign at the intersection where she got hit or she is one dumb beetch but considering it is california what would you expect. One would think stop sign or not if you have half a brain you would keep an eye out for cars. It always strikes me as people being retarded when they jog down busy streets in their showy little outfits instead of a smaller street with no traffic. I guess getting noticed is so important to the pinheads these days nothing else matters.

When Reese comes racing by -


Topless -


I was like WHOA.


Only about three or four dudes honked - which surprised me.

...For you Reese-watchers and aren't we all ...


...Reese also lifts weights down at Muscle Beach - but only on Sundays and like way, way before the crowds gather...


She easily benched like three wheels the second Sunday in August, which shocked me and the two paps watching.


-She's way hotter than like she even used to be...

Reese has a studio apartment on Santa Monica Boulevard at Tenth, the building right behind the Jack In The Box.


It's more like a rooming house -


You can have a hot plate in your room - but pay extra for a sink -

Struck up a nice conversation with Reese and down at the local Santa Monica "Winchell's."


-Near Lincoln for those of you scoring at home.


-It's right near where she got hit - and she was probably on her way there for breakfast -


Reese paid for my Apple_Fritter that day - and told me to have like a really good one -


To my disappointment and angst she had on a sports bra -

But she so didn't need it.

I had like, not counting the 1.50, only about eighty additional cents - so thanks to Reese I was also able to get coffee.


Reese practically lives at that McDonalds near the Ocean - she's always at a back table with her red cell phone and a pink notebook she scribbles in.

If you want an autograph just go to the Santa Monica Post Office any afternoon of any day.


Reese is always there on the pay phones.


She's usually nice -


But will snap if you don't let her use one.

What ever happened to stop, look and listen when you cross the street? Car vs pedestrian, not good odds.

" the driver was an 84-year-old woman "
Persons over the age of 75 who wish to maintain a driver's license, should be required to pass an actual physical "driving" test with an instructor each and every year, period. And, in all reality, most responsible people should "want" to stop driving on a regular basis at the point that they reach age 75, anyway.
GOOD GRIEF!!!!!!

The Truth    

HARVEY RUN OVER BY CAR BUT PASSES OVER HIM WITHOUT INCIDENT

The Truth is reporting that the same 84 year old drive failed to stop at another cross walk that Harvey was in, luckily the car drove right over the top of him and he didn’t have to stop crossing as the car passed over him without incident.

Harvey stated “ all I saw was a big shadow, I tried to reach up and touch it but it was too tall”

OK so maybe it’s not breaking news but it is funny.

Hi ya Harvey long time no see.
