Subject: brake lights fixed

For the archives, here's what the problem was:

Brake lights didn't work. The switch was fine and the #18 fuse was fine.
My roommate's brother traced one of the switch wires up to near the clutch
pedal to an inline fuse - the glass type in a white fuse holder. The fuse
holder and spring inside weren't making a solid connection.

My question though is why is there a fuse in the footwell and a fuse in
the fusebox? Was this added by a previous owner, or is this stock?

My guess is that some Prior Owner had a cruise control wired in, or 
used the hot side of the brakelight switch to feed power to some 
other accessory. It does not belong there.
