Tragic, indeed. I know we’re not supposed to like green tractors, but it’s a disservice to John Deere for them to show a tractor that was not involved in that particular accident. If I was John Deere, they’d be talking to my attorney.

Agreed. I wish news media outlets were a little more careful with their 'stock photo' usage.
