  1. Thanks for the information. But it would be nice to get it a day or so earlier. Those NJ State Troopers get a little testy when you try to move your car during the race – even with not a runner in sight!

    On the bright side, I always wanted to be a victim, especially these days, where victimhood generally involves only a minor inconvenience.
