Do What I Do--I Mean, What I Say!

Though you would think my tailgating of Mr. Cigarette & Gun Lover would be the highlight of my experiences yesterday, I actually observed another interesting incident on the same road. As I was driving into Front Royal on Happy Creek Rd, just as it turns into E. 6th St., a police officer was driving the other way. I went straight, but he did an illegal right turn onto the Happy Creek offshoot (with the graveyard next to it). That's right, there's a clearly posted "no right turn" sign as you are driving out of town on E. 6th (I know because I've violated it once, in a moment of extreme necessity and impatience), probably because that right turn is well over 90 degrees. The police officer didn't seem to care and executed the turn with a skill that perhaps showed it wasn't the first time he had performed the maneuver. What is the world coming to these days? Before you know it, we will have to do citizens' arrests! :D

Cigarette Control

To the man who, judging from the bumper stickers on the back of his pickup truck, believes so strongly in Second Amendment rights: that's great! Bear arms, I fully support you. Please keep in mind, however, that the world--and Happy Creek Rd. in particular--is not your ashtray! Also, the exhaust from your truck smells horrible; it might be time for a new one.
