Heh, Indeed

The Derb:

MAD AS HELL? [John Derbyshire]

The school bus stops at the corner of our street. Families 100, 150 yards along the street put their child/children into the family SUV, drive to the corner, and wait for the bus. When the bus has been and gone, they turn and drive back.

"RISING ANGER OVER HIGH GAS PRICES," says my newspaper. Uh-huh.

Ain't it the truth. As I pass down the main artery of my neighborhood in the morning, I sometimes get stuck behind a bus. So I get a very good look at all the cars lined up at the corners, many of them with their engines running. In fact, there is even a sort of unstated competition in my neck of the woods as to which parents (or nannies as often as not) waiting with the kids have the most fashionable or lugggsherious rides.

Same thing here, except no nannies. The bus stops at my driveway which makes my 2 dogs crazy...
