Be Careful! My Family's With Me!

I've never been a fan of simpy crap.  Like those "Baby on Board" signs the yuppie parents hung in their car windows half a generation ago.  Like these stupid things we see everywhere now...

My driving isn't going to be any different because your precious baby is strapped into its car seat, or because you have wifey-poo, the kids, and Meow Meow in your SUV.

Frankly, if you have one of these things in your back window, I'll bet those kids of yours are tempted to chew off their own arms to get out of your car now, and to move across the country as soon as they can!

Ummm. I hope you post again soon. I wish I knew your real name.

And now you have, and I know that it was not you who was killed on Route 87yesterday, but another scooter rider. I feel kind of selfish about saying "I'm glad it wasn't you" - but I am.

D. B., I am greatly moved by the sentiments of John Donne in his Meditation 17. All that about no man being an island, and never sending to know for whom the bell tolls because it tolls for thee.

I am saddened by the news of that man's passing in a scooter accident. I did not know him, but I feel a loss in knowing that he's gone from our midst.

As for your satisfaction in knowing that it was not I in that news report - I'd feel the same about you. Thank you!
