    Does the increase in motorcycle deaths have a corresponding increase in motorcycle hours? This may be a situation where repealing helmet laws results in more and more risk-taking motorcyclists on the road, which would naturally tend to increase the number of deaths.

    “Mexican Trucks Blocked From US” – The Senate has only voted on this; the article makes it seem that the House has yet to vote and the President has yet to sign, so I think Mexican trucks have yet to be blocked.

    Actually, though it follows the same link, that is not the same article I linked to this morning — I believe have seen that happen before with the Times. Regardless, it’s possible I misread the original piece. I have changed the headline to reflect the Senate vote. Thanks.
