    The reason why Soap Operas exist is so that normal people can watch and realize that their lives are a whole lot better by comparison. One look at the Bangor Daily News will have the same effect: It’s like one big police blotter, leading you to conclude that one out of every two people up there are criminals.

    I think it was Jerry Seinfeld who suggested that you should be able to drive your vehicle at a speed equivalent to your age.  If you’re 68, go 68.  So with that logic, if you’re 76, go 76!

    Glad no one was injured this time but what about the next time?   Hope is license is revoked !!!!

    •  Something tells me he will still drive. Sounds like lots more to the story here and as someone else said, it likely is no joke. This sounds like something that can end very badly. Best wishes to the family that he gets the help he needs.

    Why, given all the circumstances of his arrest, was he not sent somewhere where his mental health condition could be evaluated? Being held in jail is of no benefit to Mr. Mason and he is clearly a danger to himself and others, the definition of involuntary commitment.

      “Tanner drove him straight to Franklin Memorial Hospital where Mason refused to cooperate with the assessment.” Does that answer your question?

      Farmington. Really? Wrong.

      The media reports differently then they did even a year ago. They report everything so media junkies like us get our fix everytime we hit the refresh. All these stories do is prove our stupidity for reading them.

      The world is what it is. If we want to read about all the misfits in society then we are at the right place. If we want to read about all the good we need to find another source.

      Nazis? You don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • Driving on Maine highways is a privilege and not a right; the safety of others should be the top priority. No one should die on the highway becuase this person wasn’t taking his medication and was driving at high speeds to elude police. The Secretary of State should pull his driving priviliges.

    This will become more and more common as we now live in a world where due to medical advances, the body can far outlast the brain.
