  • Patriots feast on turnovers
    MADISON – Have you ever been stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, notice all the other lanes are moving so you change lanes only to have the cars in your new lane come to a dead halt? At a standstill, you notice every lane on the highway, including the one you just left, is now moving – except yours.

    Or waited in a checkout line at Walmart, change to another line because it appears to be quicker, only to have the lane you just left turn out to prove a faster checkout?
