On maintaining right of way.....

"Here lies the body of Ezra Gray
Who died maintaining the right of way.
He was right - dead right - as he sailed along.
But he's just as dead as if he'd been wrong".

(no-doubt he was on starboard tack, or sailed in fornt of the Dwight D. Eisenhower, or something).
