My wife went to her yoga class last night. On the way home, she found herself being tailed by a cop – lights on. What’s unusual is that she was not “speeding” (the wife does not drive like EP) or doing any other thing to merit a traffic stop. But that’s not the weird part. People get pulled over by cops for no reason all the time. Here’s the weird thing:
This cop followed her for several miles with his lights on. This is on a two lane (one lane each direction) rural highway. She signaled her intention to pull over but the cop did not pull her over. He just followed her. When she finally did pull over, he passed her.
Now, he could have done that at any time. The wife told me there was no traffic in the other lane. I’ve had cops roll up behind me on a call, lights flashing. I ease off onto the shoulder, they continue on their way. This did not happen here. The cop just… followed her.
I don’t know what to make of it.
And given the recent Oklahoma Thing, it creeped me out as much as it did her.
Maybe it was a cop who knew it was EP’s wife? Or thought it was EP himself? And has read some of my “hero” columns?
Anyhow, just wanted to post this – see what you guys thought.
Also – cuing Dr. Strangelove – I haf a plan.
We are going to offer stuff – in addition to the content (and community) you find here at EPautos. People have expressed interest in a “No Clovers!” sticker. So let it be written. So let it be done.
Very soon, those who donate a minimum of $10 a month to keep this site viable will get exactly such a “No Clovers!” sticker, at no charge – as a kind of thank-you for supporting the site.
To make this work – that is, if you want the sticker – you will need to send us a return address (whether you donate via PayPal or via snail mail). If you don’t send an address, we can’t send a sticker!
Now, please bear with as it may be a few weeks before we get the damned things from the printer.
But, it’s in the hopper – and we will keep you posted.
Meanwhile, we’re off goal for the month to date. If you enjoy EPautos and want to see it live, please support EPautos to the extent you’re able. I know times are tough. For me also. Hence my asking for your support.
Our donate button is here.
If you prefer to avoid PayPal, snail mail is fine. The address is:

Copper Hill, VA 24079
Addendum: Are any of you having problems posting? Issues with the Captcha thing? We enabled that to stem the literal tsunami of spam that was flooding the site. We want everyone to be able to post – even Clover. But at the same time, we have to keep up the fences, so to speak.
The easiest solution – for those who want to post and don’t want to deal with Captcha – is to register as a user. We can then “approve” you – and you’ll be able to post without hassles.
