A Fable for Our Times

[From Rick Marken (991117.1230)]

Bruce Gregory (991117.1335 EST) --

Once there was an HPCT system named Rick...

"Are you some kind of smart ass..." asked the policeman.

"I don't think so," Rick responded truthfully. "I just can't
sign a ticket that implies that I was controlling my perception
of speed when I wasn't."

And I presume that the moral of the fable is: "Only the
policeman knows whether Rick has chosen to go to jail or
get shot".
