Reader Input: Dawley swings a mean broom

-A +A

I would like to thank Michael Kirby and the Auburn Journal for my 5-1/2 minutes of fame for their Community Portrait of me published Nov. 16. I have talked to a number of people commenting about the article.

I went to a friend’s house to see the online comments on her computer. I enjoyed the comments. Thank you to those who took the time to comment. I would like to share a couple of my soap boxes with Mr. O’Brien and Ms. Willis.

Sorry you got “stuck” behind me on Auburn-Folsom Road. Those reduced speed limits are there for a reason. So all those behind me are following the law by doing the speed limit.

If I was to try and safely pull over on Auburn-Folsom Road to let everyone pass then they are speeding beyond the posted speed limit and therefore breaking the law, right? In the future if I can find a safe place to pull over, then I will.

I have never talked on a cellphone or texted while driving. I make full stops at stop signs. If every driver followed the rules there would not be so many deaths caused by idiot drivers breaking the rules.

Say Linda R … instead of me swinging a mean broom …what if I rode it around instead?
