Rooney-style reflections


Did you ever notice that the BMW or Corvette that passes you on the turnpike at 90 mph is never the car stopped by the police? For one day I would like to wear a state trooper's uniform and stop every sports car that scares the daylights out of me and issue them $1,000 tickets. What a joy that would be.

One of my favorite pastimes is looking for salespersons at the local mega-department store. If they aren't taking personal calls with their backs to you, they are congregating in that employees' black hole that none of us can find. Try shoplifting. It's the only way to get any service.

I'm amazed at these white collar criminals who are in perfect health all the while they are defrauding the public of thousands of dollars and then, suddenly, become too ill to be tried after they are caught.

The last one. How about a law that requires deducting one vote from a candidate for every campaign sign left on roads, lawns, highways etc. after the election. How quickly do you think these messes would be cleaned up then?

Surely, at one time or another you've wondered about some of these things.

Thanks, Andy.
