    I think they are taking down the building next to the Salvation Army store on the corner and the wall from the building collapsed onto the store. Myfoxphilly. Com has pictures.

    At least you opted for butter on your bagel this morning instead of cream cheese.

    Is there a level for pot to be considered high? Or is it just positive for it in your blood and urine? If the guy had a script for the percocet...I know there is an acceptable level that a person can have in their system for pain management and be considered ok....seen it in numerous car accident cases.
    One in particular was a woman who crashed her Miata into a telephone pole by the local mall. Had Blowouts to both ankles. Had a pharmacy of pain scripts in her bag, all legal. Positive for percodan. Never charged with with anything.

    For heavy equipment operation, there's often a zero tolerance policy for any drug (prescription included). It's often much stricter than driving a car.

    He was operating it with one arm in a cast, on painkillers
    and was smoking grass. I think that might be a problem.

    Well yeah....but why did his employer allow it? 1 arm in a sling??? Looks to me like it requires 2 arms functional to perform the job.

    I don't like this pot stuff. There is no blood test that can determine if you are high.

    The AP is reporting that the inspector who inspected the building before it collapsed last week has committed suicide.
