Jed,

I have a disabled license plate which I use occasionally. I always hate doing it, almost like each time I drive I have my own trip on the river denial. I think it is a typical human thing to assume people are looking at us. I mean what would middle school have been without that emotion?

In truth most people never notice and it is…
