also, i thought the term "needlessly decapitated" was odd... is there such a thing as a "necessary decapitation"?

According to NBC News, Esther Nakajjigo was "needlessly decapitated" Question - when is decapitation not needless?
the similarity of our comments in this thread is highly disturbing. i guess it's true what they say... mediocre minds think alike.
Didn't you also agree with me in the Trekking Pole thread?

The French Revolution had many needful decapitations.

Here is a google image of the gate as you are heading out of the park. The visitor centers parking lot is on the left.

Well, I think we can see how it happened. Gate not secured, holding it to the post. The stop sign helps a gust of wind push the gate into the road. and into the passenger.
