I found it funny because it is suggesting that it is newsworthy when conventional wisdom, no matter how ill-informed, is borne out by events. It is the news version of "you'll shoot your eye out."

I live in Fort Bend. Is that considered a foreign county? Or would it require 70% of the residents speaking only a foreign language to qualify? I've driven through a couple of those before.

High speed is relative. An old cop on a Segway was assigned, just to make it fair.
