We're relieved they're okay!

1968 Olympic figure skating gold medalist Peggy Fleming and 2002 Olympic bobsledding gold medalist Vonetta Flowers suffered minor injuries after their van crashed on the way to an Olympic event in Vancouver.

Both ladies were riding in Vice President Joe Biden's motorcade when the van was rear-ended. Flowers and Fleming were both evaluated and released from the hospital and shortly after they attended the figure-skating competition.

We're glad both women are doing well!

    I'm glad to see Biden took time off from his grueling non-stop television appearance schedule so he could hang out at the Olympics for a couple of months. What a hard worker he is.

    OFF TOPIC

    GREAT NEWS

    Senator Evan Bayh (D) of Indiana will not seek re-election. This comes only a week after Congressman Patrick Kennedy (D) of Rhode Island is not seeking re-election either.

    The wheels are coming off of Obama's agenda, which is great news…Americans are not Communists, President Hussein.

    Sen. John McCain (R), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) and Sen. George Voinovich (R), please join the 'Notseekingre-electionClub" too. The global warming hoax is out of the bag….America is glad you failed so miserably.

    Wow it only took you about 24 hours to report yesterdays news. Mike Eruzione was also in the car. I think that Joe Biden was also in a motorcade that was involved in a car accident this past fall.

    Ok, on to the comment … WTF is up with Joe Biden's hair? Why doesn't his barber cut the back of it?

    I had a job for several years where I dealt w/ celebrities. Peggy Fleming by far was the rudest, bitchiest, & most difficult. Glad she's ok tho. ;)
