OKAY, THIS IS JUST SAD: N.J. Gov. Jon Corzine has a terrible accident after going 91 mph without a seatbelt in the rain. On the way home from the hospital today, still wheelchair-bound, he speeds: “No one in the motorcade used emergency lights, as his driver had been doing at the time of the accident. They kept to a pace of about 70 miles per hour, even though the posted limit is 55 on the stretch of Interstate 295 that leads to Drumthwacket, the governorâ€™s official mansion in Princeton, where Mr. Corzine will spend the next stage of his recovery.”
Nice example. I mean, 70 in a 55 isn’t huge, but under the circumstances. . . .
