Drove through much of the East Coast twice over the last few years via rental car. Did not have E-ZPass. Received a few bills for tolls months later from the rental company.

There are still plenty of toll booths with breeze-through E-ZPass lanes and cash and credit card lanes.


I demand treason charges against Gosar and his family.

The sentence should be of the North Korean variety --- truss him up on a football field and shoot him at close range with an anti-aircraft weapon.

These last 30 years, it's always the same subhuman vermin. Christopher Ruddy now:
