here in Los Angeles on the freeways it's like the Wild West again. many of the drivers carry guns and if you cut them off or irritate them in any manner with your driving, they simply pull up, point their guns and begin firing. life has gotten to be too much for many of us out here, the razor's edge is always up and any slight, slight as it might be becomes the ultimate and final challenge. many wait for it, many even hope for it. but out of it all, something else has emerged: far more polite driving habits. who the hell wants to catch a .32 caliber bullet in order to gain 3 car lengths in heavy traffic? me? I'm so polite I'd make a nun puke. I prefer to die by my own hand.
