I know that I can make no difference as an individual on a national level. However, I was visited today by the local engineer who maintains state roads in this county. As a result of a plea by me, and his seeing the problem first-hand, the county is going to repaint the yellow lines on the road the deadends in front of our house. (The guy already painted temporary white dashes for the road crew to paint over.) The result will be the elimination of narrow turns by trucks that leave tire divets at the edge of our yard (which belongs to the state anyway.)

I have also sicced both state and local agencies on WalMart's ass for selling spoiled meat. The asshole manager wouldn't give me his last name when I had called to complain. So I read him the riot act and told him that he'd remember MY last name when his meat department was swarming with people wearing hazmat suits. The jackass. I'm going all the way to the FDA on this one.

One person sometimes can make a difference.
