An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil—he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you—and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Snagged by a Speed Camera in Prince George's County

               Having just been snagged by a camera for doing 42 in a 30 mph zone, I offer some observation  a copy of the Prince George's County's camera location page. The camera on Church Road sits on the north side of the property recording traffic caught speeding some several hundred yards pnorth of the school far past the tree line when one would normally accellerate. There is conveniently no 'end of school zone' sign perhaps because the regular speed and the school zone speed happen to be the same - 30 mph - but I am not bitter.
