In many cases, problems are caused by the way people use transportation.

Georgia, by Elmer D. Williams


Dear Dixie,

Very early in the dang morning headlines!  Educators get real jazzed up, too!

Nice smelling, coffeed-up educator on his way to school who knows better gets pulled over by the police going 38 in another school’s 25 mph school zone!

Policeman is literally standing in the middle of the dang road by his bad ass patrol car with a radar gun!  Pointing it at my head! 

Educator has both hands on the steering wheel so nice policeman can see I don’t have an AK-47 or a Bowie knife!  Actually, I do have a Bowie knife, but it’s at home in a drawer!

Policeman says you get a warning today, sir, but a ticket next time, sir!  And put on your seatbelt, sir!  Wearin' your seatbelt is the law!

Educator who knows not to speed through another school’s school zone while not wearing his seatbelt, looks the policeman in the eye and barks, Yessir … and speeds away!
