I watched that drone flying erratically all over the sky about an hour ago. Looked like it having trouble flying in the wind.. Wing tipping left and right.

Sure would be nice if SA Live would spend as much time trying to make their local news video's actually play (because this one don't work either) instead of spending all their time letting us know what's happening at Lubbock boat ramps or some dogs killing chickens wherever Gardendale is at.......

You.. Video worked perfectly for me, and I'm no wiz at technology. Considering the volume of whining and complaining from you, I suspect you are an unfulfilled old woman instead of an old WASP curmudgeon.

Mr Tejano Acadian, sir, while I realize that these are trying times, this is neither the time nor the hour to start taking out our frustrations on medical professionals. It's true that the doctor may be a fraction of a milimeter off the mark at times - as could we all, were we so astute - but while I'm not one for following the advice of professionals for credential's sake, I do believe that if Mr. Ding-bat is capable of publishing a doctoral thesis, then his opinions should warrant some consideration even if we disagree with them for legitimate reasons.

Sometimes it's okay to trust the experts.

Thoughts and prayers out to the poor drone. She never hurt nobody that didn't have it coming.

RIP tax dollars. D':>
