Thank you Shaun for your sage, sarcastic and 'holier than thou' 
comments.  Get back to me after you experience going through a 
green light at 30mph and a drunk runs the red directly infront of 
you such that you hit him broadside with no possible chance of 
avoidance (as happened to me).  Then tell me about "hankie-wringing".
