One reader asked whether I ever get mad enough to blow up.
I have to say that I do, but I try to block out those things that get me riled up.
There are some things that really need to be addressed, so maybe a few of them will get the attention of those who could do something about it.
When I drive the speed limit on the bypass and a truck comes buzzing by at a rate of speed faster than it should, I get mad. If the passing of a truck or car causes you to feel the force of it, that vehicle is moving too fast.
I can’t wait until those trucks start driving the new bypass, because moving them out will help the ones who drive safely.
For years we have been called “Stoplight City” due to all the lights, and maybe we can do something about that, too.
And those “no turn on red” points, like Morgan Street and the bypass, are just downright silly and should be changed. Time spent at the intersection just waiting for the light could be used for other means. There are several more on the bypass that do the same thing. I sometimes wonder about how much of our valuable time is wasted just waiting for them to change.
Another thing that really gets in my craw is the type of programs on TV that are just too filthy to watch. Why can’t a program be watched without all those bad words? With the high cost of cable, you would think providers would try to put better family programs on for all to watch.
Oh, I know I can change the channel, but why should I have to when we have these large cable companies charging all of us high prices?
