Merrill, I bow to your superior insight. It makes sense, and makes me
re-evaluate my position on the matter.

I've often wondered about the cops that I see reading email and
playing solitaire while driving. No, not while sitting at a red light.
While the car is _in motion_ and the cop is _at the wheel_. The last
time I asked a cop about his questionable driving habits (in a
civilian vehicle), he responded that he had been professionally
trained.

I'm glad the police academy includes a course on moving red queen to
black king while making a left-hand turn.
