In today’s Peanuts, Charlie Brown poetically states that "Security is sleeping in the back seat of the car. When you’re a little kid, and you’ve been somewhere with your mom and dad, and it’s night, and you’re riding home in the car, you can sleep in the back seat. You don’t have to worry about anything. Your mom and dad are in the front seat, and they do all the worrying. They take care of everything."

My family never took long trips, and we kids used to get nauseous going around the clover-leaf returning home. Coincidence or appropriate familial metaphor?
