Setting the Right Tone

Re: P. David Hornik’s Homage to the Count:

Yo, Dave. I’d also recommend “Kansas City Suite” among the Count’s latter works that really rip. Written and arranged by Benny Carter.

Re: George Neumayr’s The Unnewsworthy Thousands:

In 1984, during the (unfortunately) “annual” March for Life, Ronaldus Magnus stepped out on his veranda to greet us with his typical friendly wave. (I still love that man. He understood that one man can do only so much in this country.) His favor was returned with cheers of appreciation. Everyone knew what a security nightmare it would be for the President to visit a crowd of many thousands. We also knew that it was Congress that was holding up any legislative initiative toward states’ rights and the protection of unborn babies. Look at Judge Bork’s Supreme Court nomination in 1987, and the Democratic Senatorial Dogs of War that were let loose to bark, howl, and chew on him. At least while they were destroying Judge Bork’s career, they weren’t free to spend our money or pass some more stupid legislation. But as you said, a Bush phone call from Roswell ain’t the same.

Re: Eric Peters’ Hang Up and Drive! and letters (“Talk Radials”) in Reader Mail’s Winter Takes All:

I wish the person who rear ended me on my motorcycle while I was stopped for traffic was able to drive talk on her cell phone as well as some folks claim they can do.

Earlier down the road I observed the person who hit me weaving in and out of her lane, accelerating and decelerating. Only by the grace of God and probably some good luck did I survive a very bad accident. You can’t talk and drive at the same time, or should I say talk and pay attention to driving at the same time.

Now some three months later, I still don’t have the full use of my left hand as a result of a broken wrist I received after I was projected from zero to 45 MPH and then back to zero in a very short period of time. My motorcycle received more than $10,000 worth of damage, my medical bills are exceeding $10,000, and I have yet to settle on the “pain and suffering” issue. My protective clothing and helmet saved me from more serious injury, and possibly death. (And they want to ban fast food?)

Even if I was in a car, I still would have received serious injury.

Ban the use of cell phones on the road. They kill, and maim.
