The Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

I wish highway patrol would catch them. They may. But it seems they catch only those going 60 in a 55. And yet, the highway patrol is entrusted to do just that: stop those who break the law. We should show no sympathy to those who break laws. This is what makes us American.
