sacrificial lambif ever a story cried out for a flippant madhatter commentary, it is this one . . .

a few days ago, a young man, speeding on the freeway, struck the vehicle in front and – as a consequence of not wearing a seatbelt – was thrown from his car, his lifeless body ending up wrapped round an overhead freeway sign
