But the 12-hour drive today reminded me: one of the greatest gifts you can give me and the rest of America is courteous driving on the highway. Specifically, if you are not passing anyone (on your right), then YOU NEED TO GET THE F OUT OF THE LEFT LANE (sound familiar?). If we hang out in the right lane and enter the left only to pass another car when necessary, well the world will be a better place.

Also, just so we're clear: If you 1) camp in the fast lane, and/or 2) have gratuitously bright headlights, you are the worst person in the world.
