Re: OTB radio


Oops. :)

There *is* an antenna atop the OTB building, though (you can see it on
I-890). Must be used for other purposes.

Now... you had to mention Whitehall, PA! Scene of a *bad* moment for me,
many years ago, right by the mall. The state highway that passes the
mall has a center divider and traffic lights. At an intersection with a
Dunkin Donuts on the left, there was a sign saying No U Turn. I made a
left turn into the Dunkin Donuts, and a police officer in the lot having
his munchies gave me a ticket. When I asked why, because the left turn
was legal, he said that I was going to make a U-turn but he was *sure* I
had suddenly changed it into a left turn when I saw him! (The officer
thus thought he was the Amazing Kreskin -- plus he was wrong in his mind
reading, since I was desperate for a light, no sugar.)

And no, I didn't go back to fight the ticket. Too long a drive. :(
