Dear Mahatma: In re your recent column on speeding on U.S. 67-167 where it merges with Interstate 40, I believe the real speed starts in Cabot and beyond. On Sundays we drive to church from Sherwood to North Little Rock. My wife drives 65 mph, even though the speed limit is 60, for fear she will be rear-ended. -- GG

Dear Mahatma: Twice in two years I have been hit by uninsured drivers in cars with expired tags. The first caused $4,000 in damages. The second totaled my car and led to about $8,000 in medical bills. My insurance covered the expenses, but minus the deductible. Every week I notice at least one to three cars with expired tags, which often indicates lack of insurance. I'm angry over the lack of enforcement and the expense it has caused me. -- Furious

Dear Mahatma: When Ray Winder Field was demolished, the public was allowed to buy the seats. With that in mind, I love the balustrades on the old Broadway Bridge. Why not sell off sections of the railing to interested individuals? Can you ask the powers that be about this? -- Jo

Mr. Mahatma: With frequent news of wannabe police officers, I wonder who was the genius who thought it would be a good idea to put blue headlights on vehicles. -- W.W.
