I live close to the city of Boston, Massachusetts, and I puzzle at comments about how bad Boston drivers are. Here’s the thing: You can count on a Boston driver to do whatever it takes to get wherever they want to go as quickly as possible. In other words, although you should expect anything and everything, it helps to understand that what looks like unpredictable driving almost always has the objective of expediency in mind. With this knowledge as my guide, I have little or no trouble with Boston drivers. (Now, some of the streets on the other hand… but that’s a different story.)
Like many people, over the past several months I’ve gone from being disdainful of the candidacy of Donald Trump to being amused by it to being flabbergasted by it to being confounded by it to being infuriated by it. But recently I’ve come to an altered state when it comes to this man and the positions he takes.
