I drove 800 miles yesterday, North Carolina to Illinois -- a not-so-quick trip to my hometown to visit my parents. It's amazing that I arrived safely. I witnessed no fewer than a dozen cases of road rage during the 12 hour drive: drivers cutting each other off, drivers tailgating at 80 mph as they attempt to bully cars out of the fast lane, near misses with drivers running red lights. Middle fingers were flying everywhere, out of windows and into rear view mirrors. It's really getting scary, but to me, the only thing scarier is sitting in an airport terminal as your flight is delayed hours to fix a seat belt.
