Because in Wisconsin, everyone is stupid and everything is illegal

Just in case the crosswalk, a 24" neon yellow sign, or the actual presence of people in the street does not cause me to stop, yes, that is a crossing guard escorting two adults across the street.


What you do not see is that the crosswalk is about 20 feet from a stoplight. At a hospital. Where the speed limit is 25.

Oh yes, Wisconsin is a police state. It's the German influence of law and order. It's much better now, though. When I first moved to Milwaukee, my landlord, a respectable member of the Milwaukee Symphony, was arrested as part of a jaywalking sting and PUT IN JAIL. He called his wife and said, "Honey, I'm in the clinker."

Jail? For JAYWALKING? That is nuts. Good thing we have that drunk driving problem taken care of and can work on the serious stuff.

You know what? I SHOPLIFTED yesterday! I was at Home Depot and had picked up a thingie that one can attach to an electric drill to mix paint. Then I went to the dry wall department where I realized I was going to need a ahopping cart to haul the 18 lb. bag of patching plaster--if I didn't want it all over my navy blue outfit.

I walked all the way to the front of the store. No carts. So I walked out the front door and into the parking lot to get one. That was when I realized, "Omigosh...!"

Nobody even NOTICED. Sigh...

Yeah, I'm probably too old to be rehabilitated...
