>A young and successful executive was traveling down a
neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was
watching for kids darting out f rom between parked cars and slowed down

appeared . Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed
on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had
