    No fluoro, no cones, no signs, no speed restrictions… lucky they have their backs to the traffic, otherwise a driver would have had a plausible defense for a lack of impulse control. But then the folk most abused by this government can’t afford to fill the tank.

    Meanwhile, the assassin sat in a hired 4wd and smiled as he fondled the ponytail that was part of his disguise. He thought of how much easier his job would be without those two troublemakers. Patiently he waited for the passing station wagon to turn the bend and pass out of sight. Then he set his foot down on the accelerator as hard as he could….

  86. Sean 86
