It was a text version of the chorus of Alice's restaurant,
channeled from the fellow doorgunner mentioned who was texting in his convertible with a law enforcement officer
"5-0" looking over his shoulder... GG means gotta go.

LYRICS - Alice's Restaurant
I was referring to the, "5.0 lukin over yo shoulder. GG" part. I actually found Alice's resteraunt amusing despite the propaganda, I even have the movie on DVD. Albeit for it's historical value, because IMHO the movie is not very good. The song is good and funny, the movie is not.

Having been to Stockbridge Taxssachussettess - and as Arlo mentioned " We decieded that one big pile was better than two small ones, and rather than bring their's up we deceided to throw ours down" line of thought- stay with me now---- What if two cars were approaching with drivers texting and a head on happened. Is that better than two single car accidents? (just trying to get back on topic here)

I think it depends on their grammar.

I drove on I40 through Okie City yesterday. Didn't see one person reading or using a cell fone. Did see lots of people bouncing around off the headliner, and many a truckdriver holding on his steering wheel with both hands, as was I. I'd almost drive 500 miles on a dirt road to avoid driving through that collection of broken concrete and potholes.
Ahh, I feel better. Hand me my novel, would you??
regards

Given that most of us feel traffic safety is important, and, that traffic laws should be obeyed, then there should be a good way to self report infractions. All should be eager to participate. Solid citizens would not want others to be cited while they got away with breaking rules.

This is what Hitler said when he had laws enacted for the safety and betterment of Germany and of course you should all be good German citizens and turn in your fellow citizens for breaking these laws or on the suspicion they might. More laws, no thanks. What if one of your passengers was going into cardiac arrest or any other life threatening emergency and you picked up your cell phone to call emergency services and was immediately pulled over and told to hang up your phone and waste precious seconds while somone could be dying or some do gooder citizen attempts to stop you and cause more problems. Why can't we just use good common sense and personal responsibilty instead of asking the government to become more involved in our lives, to control us to a greater extent, to take more of our freedoms away. No thanks. I don't use my cell phone indiscriminately while driving and will pull over if I need to make a call or answer a particular call but I don't need somone forcing me to do so. If you think more laws are going to stop the morons who do this indiscriminately or without care to others safety I've got some swamp land for sale. Statistically do you know what is much more dangerous than using cell phones while driving? Household chemicals kill far more people every year. Should we outlaw Mr. Clean. There are so many things that people do everyday that are dangerous to ourselves and others it is staggering but do we really want government controlling all aspects of our lives so they can "save" us from ourselves. How about we put LEO's back to stopping rapists, murderers, robbers and child molesters and leave cell phone use to good common sense. As if the courts aren't already overwhelmed by senseless laws while real criminals are out roaming our streets and preying on us and our children. I feel like pulling a William Wallace and yelling FREEDOM!!!!!!!!! at the top of my lungs. Flame on.

Relax! Take a pill. Point is that we are all guilty of of avoidable concentration lapses while driving. Folks talk like there is a "them" out there that includes every one but themselves. Has to do with this human tendency we have to always see ourselves in a better light.

You boomers should remember when Arlo addressed a parallel situation in his "Motorcyle Song" as he was playing guitar while riding his cycle. The wind resistance being greater on the box side than the neck side he drove off a cliff. As luck would have it he landed on a police cruiser breaking his fall. Arlo ends the talking blues part of the song with the admonition to sing the song "with the same gusto like you just squished a cop". Not very PC but neither was a lot in the 60's including at times yours truly. PS, being older and hopefully wiser I can truthfully say some of my best friends are cops.

I'm at a loss. I am relaxed I simply don't agree. Is it not okay for me to express my opinion if I disagree with yours. I have no idea where the thinking I'm better than someone comes from, had nothing to do with the subject of the text. As I told someone else I should not have even responded this being the Christmas season and all. So even though I don't need it I will "take a pill" but I warn you it will be worn off by the time Christmas is over and I'll be right back to my same old argumentative self(My wife tells me all the time I should have been a trial lawyer as much as I enjoy arguing). Let me say to you and others it's nothing personal against you or others I simply don't agree with the idea of more laws, more government control and less freedom. Heck I didn't even get into banning the eating of a Wendy's burger or fries while driving. Anyway forgive me for arguing at Christmas and have a very merry Christmas.
