A Matter Of Opinion

WEDNESDAY, JAN. 30, 2008, 8:23 A.M.

Good morning, Snowkane! (loose thread)

Yeah, I swiped that from weatherman Brian Albrecht.

So, last night on the drive home I became that other driver you need to look out for. I took my usual safe route up the South Hill, Cedar, which is a gradual climb. I usually turn left at 29th, but that road was so choppy and rutted coming into work, I continued along High Drive.

Things we're going smoothly until I reached the counterintuitive (he said, rationalizing) intersection at Grand. This is the one where the cars going straight yield to the ones turning left.

Except I didn't yield. Luckily the driver with right of way didn't trust me and stopped as I blew through the stop sign. So, be careful out there. You never know when a driver like me will be nearby.

So, what's on your mind this morning?
