The Other Side of The Thin Blue Line

Call it Karma - or maybe just payback. Either way, it's bad news. Last Friday, an Alabama cop pulled over a guy - apparently, over a traffic infraction. The guy argued with the cop; a...

Do you know why SUVs became so popular? It wasn't because of their, er, sportiness. Or even their utility. It was because they provided a way to get the size (especially under the...
