Asinine judgement

It is puzzling. Usually for speeding offenses, there are very little excuses the magistrates put up with , least of all plying between two wives In fact, the recent changes in traffic rules in Britain makes overspeeding by twice the speed limit makes for punitive judgement.

On the other hand, the western countries have not taken a stiff view of polygamy among Muslim immigrants. Nabih Berri, the Lebanese shiite leader (warlord?) has a second US wife and also a US passport, i think.
