Prominently Displayed

So today in South Burlington I saw a man talking on his mobile while making a "right on red" without even stopping. Not unusual in this fast-paced society, really, but prominently displayed on the rear bumper of his car was a sticker, "HANG UP & DRIVE."

At least sixty-five people have been killed in a 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. It is the second earthquake to have hit this city in the last five months. The Guardian has live updates.

The Cathedral (photo above, from its website) has lost its tower.
