I'm a Darwin Fish girl - I'd never seen a Jesus fish on a car until we moved to South Carolina. Even better than the Jesus Fish eating the Darwin Fish is when the feasting Jesus Fish has "TRUTH" written on it. *eye roll*
El Feo - my favorite South Carolina car decoration was the bumper sticker that read - "Kids - You can't beat 'em." Rob always thought it was so crazy we lived in a state that felt child abuse could be prevented with a catchy bumper sticker campaign.
Oh, man, I'd forgotten those! I have to tell you, though, the state "borrowed" the campaign from Hawaii, if you can believe it. Maybe it's something in the salt air that makes you want to smack your kids around.
I love the U U's. We were married in the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Albany - they were just so laid back and relaxed about what we wanted to do with our ceremony. I think they would have let us sacrifice live chickens, had we asked.
Nah - the Times Useless wouldn't cover it, as it would be local news, which everyone knows won't make the paper unless it involves giving crack to prostitutes or locating a new middle school in a park.
geog - i know. it really seems to me that if we're going to try and attract residents back to the city, we have to deal with updating existing and constructing new facilities. I'm on your side on that one!
