Quick Dinner Fixins: Penne with Sausage and Artichokes

Guess what I got in the mail today?

No, I did not inharent a fortune from my great aunt Edna who was also a Duchess in the old country. I got one of those fancy pictures of my car with an over priced bill attached.

I am not ticked that I am writing the District of Columbia an exorbitant ticket, I am ticked because I have yet to get a legitimate ticket. This is the second time a fancy picture of my car has been sent to me.

The first – We had adventured down some shady streets on the not so harbory side of Baltimore. There was (I kid you not) a SWAT team setting up with giant flashing lights, trailers and the sort – with all the distractions, I may have run a red light. Flash of the camera and in the mail a few weeks later, there’s Frankie running a red light. Lesson learned: stop even if there is a SWAT team.

This time, I was doing a whopping 66 miles an hour on a 4 lane high way… Speed limit 50. I know, I’m all kinds of wild and crazy right? 500 feet down the road in the beautiful state of Virginia, speed limit signs may be seen up to 75…

It’s like skipping school for a week and then getting detention for being tardy when you do finally show up. Where are the cops when the James Bond theme song comes on my iPod and I have a wide stretch of ‘drive like a jackass’ in front of me? Where are their carefully placed cameras to protect our safety when I am called in to court on a Friday night for no logical reason? Or when I pull over to make sure everyone is ok in that hit and run I just saw? Where are the cleverly placed ‘safety cameras’ then? Generating money for who knows what company on a 4 lane highway…
