    Either that or they weren't screwed down tight. It doesn't take very much looseness to allow those things to begin to sway
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    How completely American. People rush to help others they don't even know risking their own well being. How completely American.

    We usually vacation in Traverse City around the 4th of July for the Cherry Festival but didn't go this year due to the pandemic. My grandson rode that very ride last year! We typically go the see the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds fly. Great view from the tower of the Park Place hotel! From there you can actually see the pilot clearly during their sneak passes.

    That isn't american at all, that's being a decent human being it's not exclusive to the US.

    Well, I do agree. I don't think of it as exclusive to America for a moment. Rather, I think it is completely un-American not to help another.

    The world is full of stories of people who rush to help others and are fully aware that they are risking their own well being in doing so. I for one am glad for that.

    Nationality has little to do with it I think.

    looking at the crowd of human weights to the rescue, I guess someone could also have said "How white of them..."
