Cosmic karma (or is that ‘kosmic carma’?)


I’ve driven to Canton twice this week, and both times I have angered the gods of the traffic lights. The trip includes at least a dozen stop lights, and both times, the majority of these were red.

Have you ever calculated how much time we lose at red lights? Me, either, but it’s substantial. When lights are with me, I can make the trip from Alliance to Canton in about 20 minutes. When they are against me — this week, for example — add an extra 10 minutes, at least.

I don’t know what the answer is — maybe offer up a stop sign as a sacrificial offering or something, or better yet, stop driving to Canton altogether.

    You’re dead-on about the stop lights on the way to Canton, Chris. Unfortunately I can’t avoid the drive, since I live in Canton. I have found a way to avoid the worst part of 62, but on occasions when I’ve had to go that way I have also added a good 10 minutes onto my trip. And it is road rage city. I’ll leave it at that.
