You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

On Rt. 50 this morning, I saw a black VW plastered with left-of-center bumper stickers. These made clear the driver’s support for an expansion of the nanny state and for laws designed to protect us from ourselves.

Imagine my surprise to see the driver reading a document and pulling a cigarette out of a package all while attempting to drive down this heavily-trafficked major highway.

Guess she isn’t familiar with the slogan, “Think globally, act locally.”
