You Talk Too Much













Only one good thing has come from cell phone use in cars.

There was a time when erratic drivers brought out my ugliest prejudices. Now when I see a vehicle drifting between lanes, slowing down and speeding up, I assume it’s a fool distracted by his or her cell phone instead of suspecting that a blind, old Scottish man is behind the wheel.

Cell phone users almost sideswiped me twice yesterday on I-435. I demand that you cut it out.

And as long as I’m being dictatorial, I think we should all drive vehicles like this.

I hope you enjoyed last night’s WNBA All-Star Game. As I've previously predicted, the sport is coming to the Sprint Center. Forget the NHL and the NBA; professional hockey and men's basketball in Kansas City are sportswriter’s pipe dreams.

    Emaw: I took that photo when I was in Canada a few months ago. The manufacturer's verbage is a little iffy on the timetable:

    According to an article in the Detroit Free Press, the two-door model will arrive in the US in 2008. They sell for about 15 large in Canada and apparently they haven't exactly sold like hot crepes in Europe.
