Our Prayers

The prayers and thoughts of The Empress and myself go out to WI State Senator Deve Hansen (D-Green Bay).

Kevin on the notes a horrible accident:
State Sen. Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay) fatally struck hiss [sic] 1-year-old granddaughter after she ran behind his car as he was backing out of his Green Bay home at about this morning, according to Green Bay police.

Hansen, 59, said in a statement that the accident killed Elliana Zaidel, who would have been 2 on Wednesday.

Green Bay police responded to the car/pedestrian accident at Hansen's residence at 920 Coppens Rd. at 8:36 a.m., according to a news release posted on the department's website. Officers arrived to find the girl seriously injured. Zaidel was taken to St. Vincent's Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

This is a sad and unfortunately recurring story. There is no blame only tears for the family. When it comes to stories like this political bickering seems so vain and useless.
