Three Kit Carsons And Driving While Angry

 May 7, 2023

Things that once seemed so solid—in black and white—are now portrayed as being the exact opposite of what they once were. Here's a good example.

Daily Whip Out:

"Kit Carson In Shades of Gray" 

   One statue down, another boarded up and his grave defaced. Comeuppance? Revisionist BS? Shameful? Or, is it just the duplicity of everything?  

Kit Carson Didn't Change,
But The Times Sure Did

   If you live long enough, you realize, with enough time, the wrong side of history is where you are sitting right now.

Daily Whip Out: "Kit Carson In A Gray Hat"

One Angry Nation

   It just isn't the mall shootings and the unruly airline passengers, has anyone else noticed today's flippin' crazy drivers. At Jerry Foster's memorial service yesterday, a Creeker told me he was driving down by Desert Ridge and a woman ran into the back of his car, backed up and rammed him again. His son has been in two accidents. They are both recovering.

   On my way back from the airport last Wednesday, I was at a light at 24th St. and Washington waiting for the light to turn green, when I spotted a car in my rearview, two cars back, pulling out of our lane, coming forward in the oncoming lane, and then, without even stopping, driving past us and across the intersection with some significant speed. I had never witnessed that before. When I mentioned this to Ed Mell, he laughed and said he sees this almost every day in Phoenix when he drives. People who can't be bothered by these pesky red lights. At first I thought it might just be a Phoenix phenom, but when I mentioned this to my daughter in Seattle and she said it happened to her recently at a light when a car came around a truck in the opposite side of the intersection, in the turn lane, going around a truck in front of him, into her turn lane, missing her by a couple feet, just so the asshole could pass a truck he thought was going too slow, IN THE TURN LANE! What the hell is happening to us?
