“You don't want your kids growing up thinking you're a scofflaw, do you?"
-- Janet Evanovich, Explosive Eighteen, 2011
When you go across the border at Nogales Arizona some very severe looking American guards, some of them pasty faced with sinister steelrim spectacles go scrounging through all your beat baggage for signs of the scorpion of scofflaw.
-- Jack Kerouac, Lonesome Traveler, 1960
