I was laughing at this post and then I saw the one underneath about your brother. I hope he is okay and gets well soon.

I think you missed your calling as an artist. Or board game designer ;)

I hope your bro is doing well.

I was doing the same thing. I love your cartoons.

I hope your brother is doing okay. People suck.

By doing the same thing, I meant laughing at the cartoons.

Wow! I think this is the best synopsis of driving in D.C. I've ever "read"! Seriously spot on! I'm recommending this entry to DC Blogs Noted for sure!

Wow, the stars must be bad today...or just the incredible suck-id-ness of people is spreading like the plague.

It's also apparently the day for visual aids (although yours are far more artistic than mine).

I second (Third? Fourth?) the good wishes for your brother.

I'll add my wishes for your brother.

And a request: Can someone get me off this planet? As Caro wrote, People suck. Indeed.

(Although I'll admit I've done a version of your first illustration. I don't straddle the line, but in Austin, people would continue driving in the merge lane long after it had ceased being a lane---i.e., after the lines had gone away and the lane was narrowing to one---just so they could zoom ahead a few more cars and then nearly cause an accident by forcing themselves into traffic. So once the lines disappeared, I'd center myself in the lane. Some people would still then drive onto the shoulder to go around me!)

Brother is banged up but has no broken bones. He's on a Vicodin diet for a while and won't be moving much for a few days. Thanks for all the good wishes.

Now- on with traffic complaints!

p.s. Y'all are cracking me up, talking about my "artistry". I almost didn't publish them because I thought they looked so stupid.

(this says more about me than about you, obviously)

I'm glad to hear your brother is doing relatively well. Continued good wishes his way!

I'm glad I don't live in D.C. All that rudeness would really take its toll on me after a while.

Where are the swerving cell phone talkers? Or the people who take their bathroom routines into the car- and by that I mean putting on makeup, flossing teeth, etc.

Betsy- I'll have to do another installment of Adventures in Driving. And dude, I saw a guy shaving his neck in the car this morning.

(shudder)

Ha! I'd totally be the asshole honking at you.

How's your brother doing?

A woman here in Jacksonville hit and killed a boy on his bike. While she was found to be not at fault for him entering the busy road, she did run from the scene, meaning she left him there to die instead of staying to make sure he got help. The judge gave her 15 days in jail. DAYS. I'm sad for that boy's parents.

I hope your brother is okay.

You totally forgot to reference the annoying diplomat ass who likes to never do the speed limit, cuts in front of people, breaks every law of driving and gets away with it.

A definite DC driving fixture.
