On my way to work this morning I pull up to the stop sign on main street. A little black Corolla goes blowing by at 45-50mph (25mph speed limit). I pull out behind it. The Corolla passes the town cop going the other direction, he waits until I’m by, flips on the red/blues and turns around. He blows past me, turns off his lights, catches the Corolla, follows for a block, then pulls into the church parking lot, never pulling the car over.

I think about it on my way here: The black Corolla is a village board member’s car!

I guess if you’re on the board or a firefighter in this town, you can drive double the speed limit, drive home from the bar totally plowed, and generally do whatever the hell you want in this town.
