Today Michael Bova had a long day which culminated in his getting pulled over for speeding by three police cruisers and a helicopter, spotlight fixed squarely on the hood of the Eurovan. When he asked the officer why driving 43 mph in a 25 mph zone called for quite so much backup, he was informed that the police squad is enforcing a speeding initiative in the cracked out part of town. A few speeding violations each night will also involve drug possession and stolen vehicles.
Incidentally, the officer was exceedingly friendly to Bova and suggested that he contest the ticket. Bova's subsequent conversation with his mother regarding the incident and the cop's helpful attitude follows.
"I guess he was happy to only have to deal with a polite fag in a hippie van."
"I wish you wouldn't say that," Bova's mom replied.
"What? Hippie van?"
