You are Spider-Man
|You are intelligent, witty,
a bit geeky and have great
power and responsibility.
So, I’m wondering…should I be concerned that I’m a ONE HUNDRED PERCENT match to Spidey?
There have been 13 fatalities in the past 9 days on the expressways and roads around here lately. State Police are “beefing up” patrols on the lookout for aggressive drivers, speeders, and people on their cell phones (it’s against the law here in NY to not use a hands-free set).
But, there are already a bazillion excuses for some of the crashes. The roads are bad. Poor lighting. Too many curves. Ad nauseum.
I really don’t understand why people insist on making things and other people responsible for peoples’ bad choices. Speed was a factor in which 3 kids died. Sure, it was on a twisty, unlit, bumpy road but where does the responsibility of the driver to obey the speed limit and drive defensively come in?
No wonder we’ve become a society of self-entitled whiners…we’re raising our kids to believe that nothing’s their fault, provided they find someone or something else to blame.
Lisa’s going to ask her boss for a reduced work week through the remainder of the summer, so we can concentrate more on our own business (and keep up with the work that is coming in). Keep your fingers crossed…
