Party or country?

Emergency vehicles have the right-of-way

I am appalled at the stupidity of drivers on the road. The vehicle code requires that when an emergency vehicle comes upon your car with sirens and/or lights flashing, to PULL TO THE RIGHT!

Who died and made Bobb sheriff?

I honestly don't recall electing Merrick Bobb as sheriff. I pay more than $500 a month for my HMO health insurance plan and often have to wait weeks to see a doctor. That's only if I get authorization for my referral.
