Traffic was so light as we drove along Interstate 80 just west of Wendover, Utah, on our way to Denver. Actually, it was lighter than light. There was hardly any other soul this Sunday morning driving on the highway in front of us that stretched like a snaking ribbon in the vast horizon ahead. So when a silver Toyota appeared on the lane to my right, I visually checked it out more closely than I normally would. As the small car smoothly zoomed past our seemingly lumbering heavier pickup, I glanced idly at the license plate.
