Defensive drivingOctober 17, 2007
Even residents of enviro-friendly Seattle buy large gas-guzzling cars; they just feel more defensive about it than they would if they lived elsewhere.
Yesterday I saw a minivan-like vehicle (I don’t know exactly what it was because I know nothing — I mean NOTHING — about automobiles) with a license plate that read, “4R4SONS.”
Oh, OK. All right. Since you have four sons, I’ll grant that you have a legitimate need for a minivan.
But why have four sons? Given the rate at which the world’s population is depleting its resources, wouldn’t three have been more than enough?
