I am grieved to learn that a passenger on one of our freeways was shot by a hotheaded driver. I am also a driver. I am also a hothead. I have imagined in a "Rambo-like" fantasy moment that I wished that I had a gun and could put an idiot driver out of his misery. Having felt that I dealt with reality and got on with life, apparently there is someone out there that did not. I hope that all of Los Angeles joins me in affirming our penance for the act of a thoughtless brother by openly showing respect and assistance six times each day to another motorist, especially those from outside the state, and regain our distinction as the best drivers and the most courteous motorists in the world.

A Santa Ana roofer arrested in connection with the freeway shooting of a 28-year-old motorist last weekend near the Orange County Fairgrounds was charged Tuesday with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and firing at an inhabited vehicle. Albert Carroll Morgan, 32, covered his face with his manacled hands as news cameras photographed him in Harbor Municipal Judge Selim S. Franklin's courtroom while his attorney argued against the prosecution's proposed $200,000 bail.

The first straw: You are one lump in the morning's metal porridge on a hot Harbor Freeway. Then comes a dyspeptic train of thought formed from last night's meat-loaf crumble, the drifting Dow, and, in no particular order of ire, the Ayatollah, Dan Quayle and your ex-spouse's lawyer. The last straw: A Porsche Turbo slides alongside your gasping Honda Civic. The driver is your ex-spouse.
