As I was driving down the interstate recently, it occurred to me that perhaps the National Rifle Association is on to something.
There I was, driving along in the right-hand lane, striving to remain within striking distance of the posted speed limit while staying at least a heartbeat in front of the continuing stream of grilles that kept looming up ominously in my rearview mirror. I tried to ignore the glares of the drivers of these vehicles when they zipped past me as soon as a brief gap in the oncoming traffic in the passing lane opened up.
