They make the laws, they don't have to obey them

Huh, how 'bout that - "The state trooper driving Gov. Jon Corzine was going 91 mph before their SUV swerved off the road and slammed into a Parkway guardrail last week." We already knew that Corzine wasn't wearing his seat belt as required by the laws of the state he rules.

But he's a ruler - the rules don't apply to the rulers, except maybe the rule of physics that says if you're going 91 mph and your vehicle stops suddenly, you will keep going at 91 mph.

That situation just keeps getting more and more Animal Farm, doesn't it?

As an anarchist "scofflaw" who was written up for seatbelt violations TWICE in a three-week period two years ago, I should have something snotty to say about this bit of news. But I don't.

I'm surprised no politician has written a bill to repeal the law of gravity.
