Some Isabel Chick Starts Messing Things Up All Over the Place

Well, we’re stuck. Hurricane Isabel is bearing down on Washington, and the whole city’s shut down. And since the projects I’m working on pretty much require personal interaction (kind of tough to shoot a video without subjects), there’s not much else to do other than batten down the hatches and wait it out. It’s especially amusing in that this is all hitting at a particularly bad time because —

Huh. I just realized that I’m actually gagged. Oh, not the government-enforced, First Amendment-violating kind of gag, but the ethical kind. Several of you reading this will know what I’m talking about, but circumstances prohibit my actually making public statements about it. At this point, I’ll just have to wait and see what happens, and maybe I can elaborate later — say in a couple of months or so.

Well, I don’t want to be completely mute, so... once again, it’s time for today’s Random Rant!

Why in the world do so many people keep the car-dealership license plate frames that came with their new cars? Was your dealer experience so great that you want to give them free advertising all over town? Not that I’ve had particularly bad experiences, but I’m fairly particular about what I go around promoting. Now I can understand not removing the grafted-on plate the dealer sticks onto the car itself (though I’ve removed mine), but a license plate frame? It serves no practical purpose whatsoever — and it’s plastic, for crying out loud! Even if you didn’t want to break out the ol’ ratchet, one swift tug and the whole thing’ll snap off.

Then again, in a nation where nearly 70% of the population is still laboring under the delusion — the fallacy of which the Bush regime, led by War Secretary Rum-filled, has finally been forced to admit — that Saddam Hussein had something to do with the 9/11 attacks, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised at how stupid (or lazy) people can be.

You didn’t think I’d get through this thing without any political jabs, did you?
