Christmas PSA: Zapruder of a Jillion-Car Pile-Up in Snowy Wisconsin
It's Christmastime, a time of giving, and as much as I would love to give all of you an actual, tangible gift for your loyal readership, I am but a humble radio host and cannot afford to do so.
I can, however, give you my sage advice on all things Christmas. That is free (to me), and yet still quite valuable.
For example, last week I shared my horrific experience in attempting to visit Santa's Wonderland. After that post, I got tweets and emails from dozens of you thanking me for saving you from the two-hour vehicular imprisonment in gridlocked traffic.
This week, a little more vehicular advice. It's pretty obvious, but worth over-communicating -- please drive safely in snow!
Yeah, I know, you're like, "No shit, Sherlock," but how about some visual advice to remind you to take it slow and be judicious with your use of the brakes in the slippery stuff.
