Years ago, in San Francisco, when I was a newbie working at KGO radio I got a parking ticket. SF is brutal about them. I was complaining to veteran news talk host Jim Eason who gave me this wisdom. “Don’t sweat it, just figure into your monthly budget two parking tickets a month. It’s the price of living in a city.” Sound advice. Usually, I follow it and don’t go ape–anymore– when I do get a ticket.
But, sometimes, reason gets trumped.
