WaPo Columnists Break Traffic Laws (Just Like Us)

WaPo columnists Gene Robinson and David Broder, it turns out, are human. They were named in a reecntly published story on arlnow.com (a blog that focuses on fascinating Arlington, Va.) on area residents who have received – oh the horror – traffic infractions. The story, which oddly wasn’t pegged to anyone with a recent violation, generously regarded Robinson’s and Broder’s infractions as “minor.” While the 81-year-old Broder details are noteworthy, Robinson’s lack of an inspection sticker can hardly be considered egregious.

We assume our pictured pooch has suffered a few traffic violations – and if we’re really going to be honest, it may be more comforting to glance over and see this dog driving over Broder.

An excerpt: Eugene Robinson was stopped last January for an inspection sticker that expired one month prior. He paid the $81 fine two months later. David Broder has been convicted of traffic violations five times in the past two years. Charges against Broder have included speeding, an HOV violation and driving without a license.
