I wept today...

tears of joy on the road from Santa Fe to Dallas. A late model Camry passed me going 90mph. It was a seriously little, old, grey haired man and ditto wife with Colorado handicap plates. They were following their own personal radar detector, a new F-One Fitty 4x4 all Bubba'd up. I tagged in line behind the Trail Blazer following the Camry. It wasn't long before cruise speed reached 100mph. I was so happy for the old folks I wanted to hug them and buy them dinner, I wept at the thought. I am so proud of someone like that I just can't express it thoroughly enough. Ever.

Pray that they bred and their children procreate. Amen.

So you cried tears of joy becuase the old guy broke the law? Hmmm? Would you do the same if he stole one of your precious cars?

^Sometimes the law needs to change and people can force that change. No law in the US is written in stone, there is always a chance to change it.

^Drive across the American southwest in any late model car and you tell me if the speed limits appear rational.
