Just recently a Texas municipal court judge had fined a woman $1,590 for a decal on her car license plate being missing… Though just a few days after, she has obviously changed her mind about the penalty and its amount.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last week reported on the plight of 52-year-old Fulton County resident Linda Ford and what the paper described as an “outlandish” fine that had been imposed by Grantville Municipal Court Judge Lisa R. Reeves.

The woman repeatedly tried to pay the fine at once, but she just missed a deadline…

Ms. Ford’s troubles began last fall…

It was then, when on an unfortunate occassion she’s been driving past the local police department building, as the Grantville, TX police officer pulled her over.

According to the journalists, that’s what happened next:

She’s been driving to the local church’s yard sale, where she intended to raise some money for homeless women of Grantville.

While she passed the police building, the officer pulled her over, he said, because her license place cover had too much tint.

Despite the fact that it was the dirt — not tinting — blown from the car’s exhaust that made it difficult to read her plate, the officer didn’t bother to mind it.

And that was then when the story began to become eerie…

    I haven't expected science can be beneficial to studying human feelings and emotions. However, the result of the research appeared to be quite predictable. Music is often the only relief for me when I feel depressed or sad. Still, we have to respect the tastes of others as it is a key to our musical satisfaction.

    I'm not surprised that scientists have come to such a result. Music has been human's concomitant since the beginning of our civilization and I think music and humanity are closely connected. However, if you do not enjoy a certain style, it will be hard for you to benefit from music emotionally.
