A new study says there's NO need to bar Virginia drivers from using cell phones.
The report by George Mason University -- suggests that all distractions cause drivers to crash -- whether they're rubbernecking, eating or putting on makeup.
Lawmakers have begun considering restrictions on drivers using cellphones, such as allowing only hands-free phones.
The report finds that things happening outside of cars, such as wrecks, distract drivers more than anything else.

They whine. They haul. They even guzzle fuel. The fact that these nitro-methane powered, radio controlled trucks are only one tenth the size of the real thing in no way diminishes their appeal. In fact, the mini-monsters of today can just about match the big-boys stunt for stunt.

Peters, who specializes in four wheel drive vehicles, has been a fan of RC cars for more than 20-years. He says it's easy to sink wads of cash into the hobby. But the pay-off comes on the pavement where the 11-pound trucks can cruise at up to 50-miles an hour.

He says India's past offers of friendship have been answered with aggression. And he wants more action taken to stop terrorists.

[SUPER=04-"Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" - Paramount;]

(("Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" Paramount/Nickelodeon
Since we didn't get video clips for the movies opening this week, we looked back to a G rated charmer still playing in theaters. "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" has animation that at first looks simplistic. That is deceptive. The human characters are simply drawn, but the world they move in is sophisticated and multilayered. The movie uses clever flights of fancy to tell the story of a boy genius whose inventions get him in trouble both at school and at home. Jimmy and his classmates are light years smarter than their parents or teachers, but still under what they see as the adults' undeserved authority. When Jimmy, his friend Carl, Cindy-the smartest kid in school before Jimmy came along and Nick-the school cool guy, sneak out to go to the opening of a new amusement park, they wish their parents would disappear so they could do neat stuff like that all the time. But, while they were gone, egg-like aliens in space ships shaped like rubber chickens honed in on one of Jimmy's satellites and scooped up all the kids' parents to become food for their great leader-a giant chicken. This is all silly stuff, but told in a surprisingly intelligent and charming way. The spaceships the kids patch together to go to their parents' rescue are delightful and the alien culture weird but fun. The greatest character is Jimmy's robot dog, Goddard, who can do some very astounding tricks. There are not many recognizable names among the voices, although Martin Short and Patrick Stewart voice the aliens. This is no "Toy Story" but it does get a B. It's rated G and both young kids and their parents should find something to like here. ))
