Suppose you place a half dozen scorpions in a bottle, and shake vigorously. What would be the result? One need not be a sophisticated biologist to know that each of the creatures, feeling crowded, frightened and put upon, would lash out at all the others. Something of this sort seems to have occurred in California, where motorists have taken pistol shots at one another along the freeways. Although these are people, not scorpions, and they are on a highway not in a bottle, the parallels in the two situations are ominous.
