Toll road ripoff
Guy who sends me stuff sends a story in the Metroplex paper by a guy name of Ben Westhoff who rented a car and drove it unwittingly through some toll-collection points on a freeway. He was billed an unconscionable amount for the tolls despite the fact that he hadn't been informed about his possible liability for tolls in his rental. It must be some kind of big-capital dream to be able to smack people with charges in this way. Read the whole story here and be amazed at the duplicity of the money-sharks. I'm sure if ol' Slick can sell the entire Texas highway system to these bandits, he'll grab the opportunity and explain that it was all for our own good.
