    Demons all around us...

    I have to relate a road rage incident that happened to me today.

    Me, driving home from the coast where on this highway just outside of town the road drops from four lanes to two.

    I'm in the left lane, the right lane is ending, merging left.

    I continue and let one car merge in front of me, as is the custom, a grey Soobie.

    A middle aged woman with longish dirty blond hair in a blue Hyundai figures she has the right to merge in front of me as well.

    Well, I just wasn't feeling accommodating, I had already extended a courtesy to the grey Soobie, she could just fall in behind me, so I maintained course and speed.

    She flanked me, with inches to spare and continued trying to squeeze in between me and the Subaru.

    I never hollered, never cursed, never flipped a bird, all I did was shake my head and my finger at her in a "no no no" gesture.

    Not very interesting so far, I know.

    That's when I glanced over to get a good look at what was happening on my starboard side.

    Holy $#@!...this broad was losing her mother $#@!ing mind and I mean it: screaming, flipping me off, hair flying, face red, veins in her neck and eyes popping. Spittle and foam were flying from her mouth and hitting the glass of her window.

    I briefly thought: oh Jesus please don't do something stupid like try and stop and/or come at me with a weapon, because the utterly unhinged way she was acting, I would have shot her before she got within ten paces of me.

    This went on for 10 - 15 seconds or so, then she dropped back in line behind me, where I could see her pounding the wheel with both fists, hair still flying.

    A few minutes go by, a passing lane on the left allows her to blow by me, the Soobie and another car, before she is blocked by a semi, which is where she sat for another ten minutes until she turned down a side road.

    All that rage and frustration over maybe five seconds of time saved.

    My God, that looked like a demon trying to escape her body and utterly destroy me.

    Or a rabid dog, worked up into a killing frenzy.

    WTF is going on?

    I missed a lot this for most of my life.

    You don't have to put up with this $#@! at sea.

    You folks commuting every day, is this a daily occurrence?

    2 dads exchanged gunfire in Florida road rage fight, injuring kids, but only one got charged
    Amanda Lee Myers
    USA TODAY

    Two fathers who got in what police say was a road-rage fight in Florida last fall exchanged gunfire and ended up shooting each other's daughters.

    Now, one of them is facing attempted murder charges while the other won't have to spend another day in court over the skirmish.

    William Hale, 36, of Douglas, Georgia, and Frank Allison, 44, of Callahan, Florida, were both driving home with their families on Oct. 8 after spending time in Jacksonville in northeastern Florida.

    Both men have different stories about how the confrontation started but both agree that it was fueled by road rage, that they were brake-checking each other, driving too fast and that Allison's wife flipped off the Hales, according to police records obtained by USA TODAY.

    William Hale is pictured in a mug shot the day he was arrested in connected with the road rage fight.
    At some point, Allison, his family members, and an independent witness told police that Hale became the aggressor, trying to run Allison off the road, chasing him down, and throwing a water bottle into his driver's side window.

    That's when Allison grabbed his gun and fired, hitting Hale's 5-year-old daughter in the lower leg. Allison later told police he was aiming at the lower rear truck bed.

    "After he shot, my daughter is screaming," Hale told police. "It was an instant reaction."

    So Hale grabbed his own gun from his center console and emptied the Glock 43, firing seven to eight rounds at Allison's car, Hale told police.

    One of the bullets hit Allison's 14-year-old daughter in the back.

    "It hurts!" Allison's' daughter yelled on body camera footage of the incident.

    "I don’t want to die," Hale's 5-year-old can be heard saying on a 911 call, according to WJXT-TV.

    Both girls were treated for their injuries later at local hospitals and survived.

    Frank Allison is pictured in a mug shot after he was arrested in connected to the road rage fight.
    Who gets charged?
    At the time of the melee, police arrested both men on attempted murder charges, saying they "intentionally committed an act" that could have killed the girls.

    "The act was imminently dangerous and demonstrated a depraved mind without regard for human life," police wrote.

    That was October. Now, Hale is the only man facing charges.

    The Nassau County State's Attorney's Office charged him on March 30 with three counts of second-degree attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault, and one count of maliciously throwing a deadly missile.

    That last charge stems from Hale allegedly throwing a water bottle into Allison's car.

    Allison told police that though the water bottle did not hurt him or cause him to lose control of the vehicle, it "stunned me so bad I grabbed my pistol," and that he fired at Hale's car to "get out of the whole situation."

    Allison is protected from being charged himself under Florida's Stand Your Ground Law, according to the Nassau County State's Attorney's Office.

    "Florida courts have held that the throwing of a water bottle or similar object could form the basis of a forcible felony," according to a disposition statement written by Assistant State Attorney Christopher Roth Huband on March 31.

    "The water bottle had liquid in it, and (Hale) threw it with malicious intent, clearly intending for it to enter the Allisons’ vehicle and possibly strike one of the occupants," Huband wrote. "As such, the water bottle would qualify as a deadly missile."

    This screenshot shows some of the conclusions by the Nassau County State's Attorney's Office about why Frank Allison shouldn't be charged.
    Huband goes on to say that Hale's "aggressive driving pattern and the throwing of a water bottle placed the Allisons in fear of imminent death or great bodily harm and constitute the commission of forcible felonies."

    "William Hale’s actions – both independently and collectively – justify Frank Allison’s use of deadly force against William Hale," Huband wrote.

    It's unclear whether Hale has obtained an attorney.

    'Two stupid grown men'
    Back in October, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper told WJXT-TV in Jacksonville that there very nearly were "two dead kids because of two stupid grown men."

    "What is scarier than one crazy driver with a gun, than two crazy drivers with a gun?" Leeper said. "Thankfully, no one was killed in this incident, but it could have easily turned out that way because two people were acting stupid and let their tempers get the best of them."

    He said drivers who find themselves in a similar situation should have the wherewithal to stand down.

    "Someone who's driving aggressively around you, let him go," Leeper said. "Slow down. Go the other direction. Get the vehicle description if you can and call police."

    It's called "the zipper". That's how you merge.

    Similar thing happened to me a few months ago. Two lanes down to one on the highway, speed limit 65mph, everything came to a stop at the merge.

    I was in the left lane, merging into the right lane, no rush. However, it happened that the left lane ended up being less crowded, we were all going at full speed a few seconds earlier.. so inevitably I ended up passing some people in the right lane waiting. I got in position to "zipper" in, car in front of me getting behind Car 1, in front of Car 2, I line up behind Car 2 to merge in. Car 3 is some angry young hot blond chick, looks over and yells and flips me off. So I just got behind her, let 2 cars in front of me.

    That's exactly where I did not want to end up.

    Especially considering her insane reaction to the whole affair.

    I kind of see it as they drive like they vote . If your as far east as AF , doesnt matter if your in line at the deli or in traffic . At least half the population voted for gore , kerry , clinton , obama- biden - harris. So pretty low IQ , a lot of mental illness without even factoring the demons in.
    Do something Danke

    And there’s always a few aggressive drivers. You have those who are aggressively trying to go around as many cars as possible, and those who are aggressively trying to stop people from going around. Usually in a zipper merge situation, it’s the right side where people try to pass everyone, because many people anticipate and merge left before the last minute, leaving the right side more open.

    People who are on the right and just stay there until the end aren’t really aggressive. It’s the people who move from left to the right and hit the gas to pass as many people as possible. Same dynamic occurs with long exit lanes, where people get into the exit lane and speed to pass as many people as possible, then cut over at the last minute, often crossing solid or double solid lines.

    There is a consistent vindictive competition on the road, even when people are not conscious of it.

    Another example is speed and passing. Inevitably, when a passing lane opens up, the person who was holding up traffic will speed up once there is a passing lane. Sometimes a little, some times a lot. Why? Because those other people can’t go faster!

    And we wonder why socialism is so successful when it points to other people with more, and says “that’s not fair, they shouldn’t have more than you!”

    Recently on my way home from work I put my right blinker on to move to the right lane. As I'm moving into the lane this guy zooms right past me and I had to pull back into the left lane. He didn't show up at all in any of my rear view mirrors. He then proceeded to roll down his window and gave me the middle finger.

    Hymn written by Martin Luther for a TV show produced by the Lutheran Church in the 1960's.



    Davey & Goliath was a terrific TV show. Watched it every Sunday morning.

    "In this stop-action animated series, young Davey Hansen and his best friend (and dog) Goliath live ordinary suburban American lives. In each episode, Davey and Goliath experience some form of moral conflict either in themselves or in their friends. Drawing upon the guidance of his parents, his teachers, and his own religious beliefs, Davey doesn't always do the right thing, but he does always come away from the experience having learned valuable moral and life lessons.
