    No injuries? How about the robot, last word is he/she is in a local auto body shop being welded back together.

    I somehow read that as the “Macarena Stadium.” Guess what song is stuck in my head now for the forseeable future?

    Ohhhhh, Macarena!

    All they need is good jobs and a complete abolition of those evil air conditioners.
