Parking Ramp Morons

Ever have one of those days where you’re not paying attention until after you park the car?

Hmmm … looks kinda tight:


And, it’s not much better on the other side:


What to do? Simple … climb out through the trunk.

I think SUVs should be banned from parking ramps.

Minnesota "Nice", as in "Nice job parking, idiot"

I tell ya, some people just have no appreciation for those around them:


I mean please. If you look in the lower left of the picture, the yellow you see below the SUVs bumper is the dividing line of the adjacent parking space. If there hadn’t been a cement post on the right of the car (giving me extra room to climb in over the stick shift), I’d have to have gotten into my car through the trunk.

Don’t laugh, I’ve done it before.

This is the making’s of a real good week.

Don Imus Leaves the Airwaves. So?

I must say, I’m a bit ambivalent.  MSNBC dropped their simulcast, CBS fired him, the media’s “analysts” can’t stop talking about it, Al Sharpton claims a victory, Rutgers accepts his apology … and I can’t help but think:

“Are we going to consistently treat everyone who uses racially improper speech with an equal amount of vitriol and retribution?” 

If so, then good.  If not, then how many of those loudly screaming now will be silent the next time?

I really hate jumping in on major public brawls like this.  Everybody who’s anybody (and plenty of people who aren’t) have already opened (and will continue to open) their mouths.  But there’s another issue here that’s being marginalized:  “What happens the next time?”

Whether Imus went too far or not isn’t the issue moving forward, consistency of response is.
