The streets were slippery, but that wasn't the trouble. Ed swung right out in front of Jim in a line of traffic, and then was nearly a crash. Now Ed isn't a reckless driver. Be just happened to be thinking cf something else. And when he gets day-dreaming, he sort of gete a "blind spat" to what's going on wound him. Lota of n* hare "Hind spots" Uke that, without realising it And It's mighty Important U» b* on guard against them. We've got to be sure we're respecting the right* of the other fellow ... or some day he may forget to respect ours. If Jim likes classical music, while Ed likes the movies, that's their right of choice. If Jim prefers a plea* sant glass of beer, while Ed enjoys coffee, that's their right, too. Those sound Kke little things, bat such "blind spots" can add up to big things if we don't watch them. Jot Morth Copyrighted, U. S.
