I'll be on the lookout for road signs bearing the sentence "Right-bearing
curve ahead," and will be curious how many languages besides English are
included. And, I'll start lobbying my highway department to take down all
the signs with the right-pointing arrows! Same for left stuff, too. No
skull and crossbones on bottles of poison anymore, either. And, next time I
do a bulleted list, I'll use "bullet."
