Cross Purposes

Ever wonder why traffic gets so screwed up in some places, or for that matter, why some regions seem to have far worse traffic than others? Two items tell a portion of the tale.

1. Virginia regions consider letting golf carts on roads

2. Distractions bad for safe driving

There's a lesson to be learned here.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
