Today’s post will be short, because I’m suffering from drool-induced dehydration after yesterday’s unveiling of the new MacBook Air. Both my wife and I have been overcome with a collective case of tech lust. (Purgatory = tech lust + no money.)
So I’m going to share a story from my father’s volunteer work with his local police department. (He hears all the good stuff.) It seems that a residential through-street behind a high school had been getting a bunch of speeders roaring through it, which was irking the locals, who called in complaints to the police. A motorcycle officer headed over to the street in question, and was heard on the radio calling in speeder after speeder. Apparently the locals had a legitimate complaint.
But when my dad talked to the officer back at the station, he learned that many of the speeders who got tickets were not high school students. They were residents of the street. In fact, the officer ticketed a couple of people in their driveways. And one of the drivers he ticketed turned out to be…
…yes, the same person who had called in a complaint about speeders.
