Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

New York Drivers

Are idiots. That may seem a bit harsh, but true nevertheless. I was going to Rochester yesterday on the thruway, and the NY game of leapfrog was going strong. I'm driving about 70mph with a couple hundred feet between me and the car ahead.  The left lane empty ahead. Next thing I know, a car comes up on the left, passes me, whips over into my lane maybe a car length ahead of me, and stays in the right lane until he (or she) gets close to the truck ahead of me, when the car whips into the left lane, passes the truck and whips back into the right lane.  If it was just one now and then it would be  one thing but it's over and over, cars, trucks, semi's, buses. Maybe it's that I learned to drive in Calif where the faster traffic stays left, but to me this NY stay to the right leapfrog is stupid and dangerous.
