Assault With a Driven Weapon
You ever notice how things sometimes come in clusters? No, not just breakfast cereals, but things like celebrity deaths. Even comic strips occasionally align, giving you a weird feeling of deja vu as you notice that both "Beetle Bailey" and "Hagar the Horrible" have chosen the same day to address harridan mother-in-laws. What are the odds of that?!
The same thing happens with news stories. That's why I wasn't surprised to see this story about a woman in Bethesda losing control of her car and crashing into a hair salon a scant day after this story about a man who was learning to drive losing control of a van and driving into an apartment. (That neither man actually had a license is just a little treat for readers.)
Where will the next vehicle end up? An ice cream parlor? A hospital emergency room? A joint session of Congress?
