In comments Sherm called my attention to the 1,000 year old Sequoia that fell and crushed a car. Here's the story.

I can't decide if Sherm found this story notable because it crushed an (evil) SUV, or because he feels some kinship with the sudden fall of an ancient icon.

First of all, you're two years older than me, Mister Fifty Year Old Guy who remembers black and white tv.

Crushing an SUV is great -- better would be crushing an SUV while a cellphone using driver gets crushed as well.

As for the ancient icon -- I just want to know what kind of high you can get from smoking the carcass.

Pretty hostile attitude. So what are you don't remember black and white tv...yeah right.

No, not hostile. You want hostile against SUV users? Check this:,1,4987603.story?coll=la-home-headlines

And as for black and white, it was always Disney's Wonderful World of Color for me. You only remember B&W because you are secretly Jack's older sister.
