    We couldn't tell where they started from, looked like somewhere north/west of downtown. Some teams walked to Union Station & some took a bus there. I think the walkers got there first & then took something called the Flyaway.[/QUOTE]

    What happened was that some teams walked to Union Station and then took the FLYaway bus directly to LAX which is faster and the other teams walked to the 7th street metro station where they took the train. The train is slower because you have to transfer to a different train and then take a shuttle to the airport.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks, Tiger.

    You're right. She is sweet and maybe a little ditzy, but this has worked for her so far. I met her in person and know her sister a lttle. They are good people, as we say in NC. I know she is not very worldly and has lacked many experiences, which doesn't necessaeily transalate as dumb, just that she hasn't had chances like others may have had.

    One piece of advice to the racers. READ your instructions. I think this is the most teams I have ever seen make so many mistakes and on the first leg.

    Jordan is nothing but Dumb dressed up in a cute shell. It's painful to have to watch her try to think. A grown woman that can't tell time is sad.

    I've found that many, many children can't tell time on an analog watch. They want to be told what number the "big hand" will be on when they are looking for a certain time...but they can't tell you what time it is when that happens. They are all about the digital displays, and the schools don't seem to be really teaching them that with any kind of success....but they will test them on it.

    You know what I think is sad....the girls on The Bad Girls Club...who flaunt their body and hook up with anything with two feet. Thats what I call dumb. Whats smart is acting like a responsible, mature, self respecting young woman on a reality show (BB)...where it would be really easy not to. Jordan respected herself and her family enough to behave like a lady. There should be more of her out there.

    Thats changing, I think. My daughter's school is teaching face clocks. Her class doesn't have a digital at all.

    I personally do not want TAR to become a sequel to BB this season. I quit watching BB several seasons ago for a reason.
