Don't Tread on Me
I detest speed and red light cameras. I think they are unfair unsporting and totalitarian. South Swindon in the UK has become the first municipality to remove speed cameras. OK. They didn't do it out of principle, but because they weren't receiving the revenue, but who am I to complain? Now, if only the Riverside, CA city council would do the same with our red light cameras. I never run red lights -- really -- but it is the principle. I want discretion, the benefit of the doubt -- humanity in dealings with the government. I don't think that's too much to ask.
