Cops Texting

We're gonna take you back, to the year 1939
when Charlie Chaplin and his nazi regime

enslaved Europe and tried to take over the world...

But then an even greater force emerged, the U.N.

and the U.N. un-nazied the world - forever

--Idiocracy
(2006)

Patriotism is a pernicious, psychopathic form of idiocy
--George Bernard Shaw


Ranger Question of the Day:

Why do cops get discounts at restaurants

while veterans usually do not?

Haven't we both served our country?

The NYT acknowledged Oprah's commendable campaign against texting while driving by running her opinion piece this weekend (Dnt Txt N Drv.) [Ranger gave Oprah her props here.]

Florida is considering a ban on texting while driving, which is only sensible. But what about the police? Will they be required to stop and park before they use the computers mounted right next to their driver's seat?


The police clearly use these instruments while they are in transit, in addition to cell phones. If a law is enacted outlawing texting while driving, then police agencies should be restricted from such potentially deadly distractions as well as the general citizenry.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.
