Today, the local daily informs us 500 speeding tickets were issued by Asheville police officers whose radar guns were not calibrated. I am not particularly impressed. As I’ve said before, Nolan Ryan’s pitches were clocked at over 100 mph, so why couldn’t an officer heave the gun and show I was speeding at 156 mph in a 55 zone?

To make you feel better, the police department has released the usual bit about reviewing the matter and assessing the situation and revising policies as necessary.
