"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Driving Courteously

The project:
Let people merge in, even when they pass that long line to "get ahead." Leave openings for big trucks. Wave others through four-way stops first. Pass kindly. In general, drive courteously.

We spent about 12 hours in the car this week getting to points south, then north, then home again. All of them involved putting other drivers first.

Why bother?
Makes the drives so much more relaxing, and probably safer for us all, too.

Worth it?
