Just Because You're Paranoid …

Curious placement of the city's new red light cameras, no?

… doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Austin ACLU leader Debbie Russell shares this bon mot regarding Austin's new red light cameras at 11th St. and I-35:

One of the two red light cameras put up just happen to be at the closest major intersection to the ACLU-TX offices. This has not gone unnoticed by the staff (to which I wonder if my name gets mumbled in vain when passing thru).

But don't worry – they're just testing them out! Right? Right?
