I always get angrier when I drive from Baltimore to DC whenever I drive my wife to work. I usually get a lot calmer but more vigilant about halfway (Laurel, MD) on the drive back.

Whenever I drive to Philly, I only get somewhat miffed. If I ever drive to Pittsburgh, I'll be positively euphoric but I may not want to come home.

In Laurel, check for turbans. We have it on good authority from a poster here that it is a hotbed of Al Queda terrorists. My opinion is that what you are calling "road rage" is actually the work of these heathens in their attempt to tempt God-Fearing Christians into violating the commandment to love thy brother. And be careful, they may have infiltrated the police as well. Remember this: if you are stopped, casually say "The Prophet be praised!". If he reflexively answers "Peace be upon him!" shoot him!

Liar. Texans never reload, they just reach for another gun.

No worries. This is the next exit after Laurel.

So, the further from home you go, the happier you are......

Those queers ain't Texans. The lack of a front license plate is one thing, but a Dodge pickup? Get out of town before we hang you.

Nooo.. The closer to home, the better I feel. Unless Pittsburgh is involved but I'm not sure of that yet since it's been a long time since I've been there. Also, I have to pass the DC metro area (sorta) to get to Pitt.

These fellers are just west of the Sabine but don't call'em 'Coonasses'. They're more tolerant of motor vehicle violations in East Texas...no front plates, chains dragging from the rear bumper...that sort of thing.
