This newspaper editorial about people who drive slowly in the left lane invokes an old George Carlin routine that surely resonates with truck drivers

Have you ever noticed that when you’re drivin’, anyone goin’ slower than you is an idiot? And anyone goin’ faster than you is a maniac?

“>Will you look at this idiot!” [points right] “Look at him! Just creepin’ along!” [swings head left] “Holy s—!! Look at that maniac go!”

Why, I tell ya, folks, it’s a wonder we ever get anywhere at all these days, what with all the idiots and maniacs out there.

— George Carlin, iNapalm Silly Putty (2001)
