A senator’s wild ride

I thought you might enjoy this story from the San Francisco Chronicle about a California state senator’s alleged ride of destruction, in which cell phone talking played a large part.  Best irony: she voted for a bill that will go into effect next year and require drivers to use hands-free devices when talking on a cell phone. I also really liked the part where she screamed at the driver of the car she hit that she was a senator — what is it about public figures that makes them mess up in a highly visible way and then call attention to their status, as if that is calculated to do anything but make sure someone tells the media?  Here’s a second story that includes additional details of alleged reading while driving 80 mph and running people off the road.

    Well, if you’re going to be careless, it might as well be on the Government’s tab.
