Since America no longer has a functioning government, our roads--whether they're city streets or major highways--are pot holed and pockmarked like those in a war zone. It's estimated that the average driver spends $600 a year on car repairs due to our sorry highways and byways.
I thought about all this one night last week as I was taking a long, undulating cab ride home from yet another freelance assignment.
That's when my cab driver turned to me and said, "Do you know how you can tell a drunk driver in New York?"
I thought for a minute before giving him a good ol' New York "Dunno."
"Drunk drivers in New York? They're the ones driving in a straight line."
