    I am married into the 1% and my kids both bat mitzvahed in, so I have heard the references before but still don't know what most of them mean. I know what kvetching is though. Boy, do I know.

    I see the sign as simply an indicator of which lanes are which, not requirements. At least that's the intent that I perceive. They are like painted lane markers in that regard. Of course, now we can...
