RICKY RAT got caught up in this traffic mess yesterday. He was heading northbound through Central San Rafael, and the traffic was just crawling along. And then he saw a couple of CHP dudes walking on the side of the freeway, coming towards him. Well, they stopped the car in front of RICKY RAT, bringing traffic to a complete stop, and went over and were peering down at Hetherton. And RICKY RAT was going "Huh. Maybe someone went over that thing. Huh. Two cars. If I had been just TWO CARS faster, I'd be doing 75 MPH right now!! TWO CARS FASTER!!!!"...

RICKY RAT'S just kidding around. I hope the guy's OK. And, if you're going to fall from that distance, the top of a car is a lot better landing spot than pavement. I figure.

True story. And RICKY RAT don't trip on that kind of thing. One time, he got stuck in stopped traffic on the upper deck of the Richmond Bridge. Beautiful, clear day. And everyone was out of their cars, walking around. You ever walked around on the upper deck of the Richmond Bridge? On a beautiful, clear day? RICKY RAT has...
