At the buffet, when the fortune cookies came w/the bill, I suggested we ask questions that the cookies would answer. I asked if a book I'm writing would sell well (when I finish it--in the next 5 years--hopefully.) My cookie said "Your determination will bring you much success."

WILMER, TX; A bus ferrying nursing home residents away from Hurricane Rita caught fire and exploded Friday while stuck on a gridlocked highway south of Dallas, killing as many as 24 people. Early indications were that mechanical problems, possibly with the vehicle’s brakes, sparked the fire, which was then fed by explosions of passengers’ oxygen tanks, Dallas County sheriff’s spokesman Don Peritz said. Authorities believed 24 people were killed, but that number could change, Peritz said. Sheriff’s deputies and the bus driver tried to rescue passengers but could not get everyone off the bus as it became engulfed in flames. The vehicle was reduced to a blackened, burned-out shell, with large blue tarpaulins covering the bodies.
