Another high-speed moment of grace. I was driving (at the speed limit) on a four-year divided highway in Maryland, when I saw a cable-company van pulled over onto the median. Then I saw the snapping turtle in the middle of the fast lane. As I drove past in the slow lane, the cable guy picked up the turtle with good form, namely: with heavily gloved hands at the back of the turtle' s shell. In the rear view mirror, I watched the cable guy carry the turtle the rest of the way across the road. The cable company has a reputation for bad service, but they hire Good People.
