  • Flip-flopping speed limits don't make sense

    It's quite a humbling experience to get caught doing something wrong in front of one's children. But about four years ago, that's just what happened.

    The kids and I were traveling home from a soccer game when blue lights flashed in my rearview window. I glanced down. Uh oh. While we were laughing and talking about the game, the speedometer needle had crept upwards without my realizing it.

    The kids were shocked: Mom was getting pulled over by a police officer.

    Of course, they laughed about it later, and they still won't let me forget it.

    "I'll let the experts pick it apart and digest it," he said. "I've got enough to do getting ready to be a senator."
