We could say he's insane, but that would surely require us to have some type of government license. We could say his wheels have come off, but we cannot proclaim to be engineers.

Reader is tired of bumps in the road
To the Editor:

I was traveling on Stevens Street yesterday and I came across something that was very unusual. I got to Frederick Street and there was an actual sign that warned me of a "BUMP" in the road. I thought to myself, "Gee, what a novel idea... warning drivers of an upcoming bump so they could slow down a bit to save their teeth and also their tires and shock absorbers."

Fish like a girl
We all hear a great deal about aquatic invasive plants in the lakes and rivers. I know I talk about them often, but there are other invasive plants causing just as many problems on dry land. Luckily, there is an organization dedicated to dealing specifically with those plants and helping land owners to rid themselves of invasive pests. Like aquatic invasives, terrestrial (growing on dry land) invasives will also outcompete native species and can take over large areas quickly. (subscriber access)
