Drumming my fingers...
Kristi has a bunch of speeding tickets in South Dakota. Steph has one. But Lars has a dozen, so Steph’s total is now 13. A judge in Rapid City refers to speeding tickets in his courtroom as “revenue enhancement.”
A law is a law, and when we speed we risk a fine. On open rural highways, speed limits are pretty arbitrary. Bench warrants? They’re handed out like popcorn.
There is so little difference between Ms. Herseth-Sandlin and Ms. Noem in practical terms that we seem to have been reduced to arguing about which future pork-shoveller will best represent the law-and-order side of us. When it comes to pork, does it matter?
The larger number of aggregate family speeding tickets gets my vote.
