Runners' Rage In the NY Times

"Police officers responded to an incident in April in Morris Plains, N.J., that began when a driver entered a crosswalk and blocked a jogger’s path. The runner retaliated, slamming his fist on the hood of the car, which prompted the driver to try to pin the runner against a parked car. The runner then reportedly struck the driver with his iPod — at which point the motorist reached into the back seat and pulled out a golf club."


So that's what we've come to as a society: iPods vs. golf clubs?  I guess it's better than guns.
