Irony: It’s not Just a River in Egypt

rust-oleum.jpgA California State Senator ran her Toyota Highlander hybrid (good on you) SUV (well, sort of) into another woman’s car on Saturday. Senator Carole Midgen’s mistake led to a three-car smash-up after she apparently missed her exit and attempted to find another means to get back onto the freeway. However, the real reason for the accident was because the senator was speaking on her cell phone at the time.

The irony:

Migden last year voted for a new law that takes effect in July 2008 that will impose a minimum fine of $20 for anyone caught using a cell phone while driving without a headset, ear bud or other technology that frees both hands.
