Two Minor Observations...

1) I learned today that "right on red" does not mean that the driver must turn right - it means that right is permitted but discretionary (makes sense). Accordingly I apologize for honking my horn the other day when the person in front of me at the corner of my town's main street and the highway did not turn right.

2) I learned today that a few months ago Obama raised the tax on a pack of cigarettes by $0.62 per pack and that smoking is down since that tax was imposed. I (deeply) wish he had raised that tax by $6.20 per pack and can see no reason not to have done so.
