Exercise politeness on the public thoroughfare.

The mother, 26-year-old Patrice Price, was driving a car belonging to her security guard boyfriend on Interstate 41/U.S. 175 southbound and was shot around 10:30 a.m., the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

“Initial witness accounts indicate that a child in the back seat of the vehicle got a hold of a gun and discharged the firearm, sending a single bullet into the drivers back,” the sheriff’s office said.

First responders arrived on the scene soon after the shooting and found her without a pulse and breathless. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

More guns would, no doubt, have prevented this.

The German city of Augsburg is embedding warning lights in the pavement at traffic intersections to alert smartphone users who don’t looking up before crossing the road.

Rows of red LEDs have been embedded in the pavement after a 15-year-old girl was killed when she stepped in front of a tram while looking at her smartphone and listening to music. Two other people have been seriously injured in separate but similar incidents.

Without taking a stand on the specific legal issue at at stake, I can still point out that some states clearly think that they are more equal than others.

When I was a young ‘un, back in the olden days, the proponents of segregation and of the War in Viet Nam (not necessarily the same persons, mind you) loved to blame “outside agitators” for civil rights sit-ins and anti-war demonstrations.

The chorus of reaction hasn’t changed, but it wasn’t “outside agitators” then and it’s not “outside agitators” now.
