Man, I loved that driving in New York video. I know some drivers like that. I took my son's former girlfriend to a driving lesson, and the instructor (thinking I was her father) pulled me aside and said confidentially, she shouldn't ever have a license. She had made 7 traffic violations in 15 minutes.... and never left the parking lot.
I'll bet that she's got a license. When I was a young'in, I watched Silence Please
,which just fascinated me. I don't know if it was the people, light, or whatever. It was a glimpse into recent history. Different people. Different time. Maybe the light caught on film immortalized on film and maybe digitalize?
What's the difference between then and now? I enjoyed the Rockford Files
, but other than the now ubiquitous cell phone and flat screen monitor, can you tell me what's different between the 70's and now (except the "boats" that lumbered along our highways?).
About 30+ years ago, I was walking down some street near a courthouse with a nearby police station. I saw a woman try to parallel park between two cars (they happened to be police squad cars). She banged into the one in front, and then the one in the rear, and did it a time or two before she pulled out and hit a squad car that was passing bye. If I didn't see it, I wouldn't have believed it. The police officers were laughing so hard (me too), and they let her drive away. Different time. I've seen strange things, but nothing like this. It was still America. I miss those times. How about you?
