Time for a few more Darts and Laurels.
First, a laurel goes to the Advertising Federation of Louisville, which the Washington-based American Advertising Federation recently named its "Club of the Year" for 2006. Achieving this distinction even once is quite an honor, but this is the seventh time in 11 years - and the fourth time in five years - our local organization has done it. Good job!
Meanwhile, a dart goes to any driver - and you know who you are - who uses Bardstown Road or Baxter Avenue at rush hour, but doesn't have any idea what those red, green and yellow lights hanging over each lane mean. They're there to let you know which lanes are for left turns only and which are for through traffic. And if that's too complicated for you to bother with, please -- find a different route to and from work.
And finally, another dart to those people who love nothing better than a good smoke in the privacy of their own automobile, but think nothing of using the rest of the world as their own personal ashtray. Here's a bulletin: That thing you hang your arm out of is a window - not a trash can. And a good rule of thumb is: While driving, your butt should remain in the car at all times.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my...Point of View.
