    The Shpirers nebech lost a child circa 25 years ago! How tough this must be. May they only know of Simchos and Yeshuos going forward.

  2. To huju: It is a logical and probable conclusion that the drunk driver was an illegal alien, considering the large numbers of them bussed to NYC from border states.
