You may get your wish, Tim. Last night it was reported that the red light camera program will run out of money soon. What happened to the much touted earlier surplus, I don't know.

I may go back to school for a Phd and make it my thesis. No data on it yet, I just envy them.

This must be the king of off-topic digressions. But yes, perhaps yoga and the increased skin elasticity that comes with age. Good luck Vin and pls keep us posted on your progress.

BTW, for you wee lads and lasses out there - did you know that once there was a law in the land ( It covered ALL the land. ) that forbid, yes forbid a person from driving at speeds in excess of 55 mph anywhere?

It didn't matter how well lit, straight, flat, desolate the road was and if you were driving a vehicle that was capable of doing 2x or 3x that speed, you were NOT permitted to go that fast?

The law was not originally passed for the purpose of safety, but it degraded into that rational.

That law, like a ban on cellphone use, was unenforceable.

Repealing seat belt laws sounds fine on the surface. Seat belts and helmets save more than just lives, they save millions of dollars in medical and insurance dollars. Anybody who wants to drive without one should have to prove they are privately insured and capable of absorbing the cost themselves when they smack the windshield or bounce off the dashboard. Having insurance is not enough - everybody in the pot eventually pays the price. Post a bond for about a million or so and drive belt-free or ride without your helmet to your heart's content.

Just my view.

My thinking goes along the line of "thinning out the herd."

The progeny of those too stupid to lash down their children without
being told to are also likely to grow up too stupid to know better.

It's better to stop the cycle of reproduction as soon as possible.

Yeah, but the U.S. doesn't need any, we get ours from Mexico.

Unskilled or uneducated is not the same thing as just plain stupid.

Some of the smartest people I've ever met couldn't construct a
decent sentence. Some of the dumbest people I've ever met were
somehow mysteriously able to get fantastic grades in school.

I have dug my share of ditches, and cleaned my share of toilets,
vomit, ( not counting kids, cats ... ) ... etc.

Anyone calling me dumb is cruising ....

Anyone calling me jerk, or @-hoal, or anal-retentive pinhead ...
... probably has good company.
