Jaywalking's a curious thing.
When I lived in New York, no one seemed to care. In San Francisco, on the other hand, people stand dutifully while the red man is alight, even if there isn't a car in sight.
In Austin, Texas, though, police take it very seriously. Indeed, one incident this week has some believing they take it too seriously.
For here we had what appeared to be quite an aggressive arrest of a jogger who was wearing earbuds, and therefore potentially ignorant of the natural sounds that surrounded her.
