Giving "Nerdfighters" a Whole New Meaning

Remember when I suggested my brilliant plan for increasing traffic here at ATR with YA authors and their costumes? So, umm, yeah . . . I think I may have been wrong. On second thought, I don't think we should risk an Internet feud. My word.

"A Navy man who got mad when someone mocked him as a 'nerd' over the Internet climbed into his car and drove 1,300 miles from Virginia to Texas to teach the other guy a lesson.

As he made his way toward Texas, Fire Controlman 2nd Class Petty Officer Russell Tavares posted photos online showing the welcome signs at several states' borders, as if to prove to his Internet friends that he meant business.

When he finally arrived, Tavares burned the guy's trailer down."

John and Hank should be careful. Apparently, not everyone likes being called a "nerd."

If only that guy had known that "nerd" is a compliment!

Jeez. Yeah, let's not start any internet feuds. -John
