If you see the rotary on the road, kill it

My web statistics tell me, much as I would like to be known for my trenchant commentary on science/faith issues and current politics, that most of my visitors come for articles on one of two things:

Therefore, I must needs inform my readers that the Tao is no more. Yield and proceed is no longer a living example of Eastern mysticism. As of June 28, after a humorous bit of confusion among government officials as to what the law really meant, it was decided that the rotary is now a proper traffic circle, where the drivers in the circle have the right-of-way.

I have been in favor of this change for some time; I even told the CBC so, when they came calling about the haiku. I can't deny, though, that the old way was more fun. It seems a shame to lose all the chaos.

But there's hope yet: the lights still shine both red and green. Visually the rotary continues to evoke a vibrant indeterminacy.

Um, congratulations. I think.
