Goodbye Heloc

It is my fondest hope that in the coming real  estate  meltdown, every inconsiderate jerk in an expensive, oversize pickup, every ignorant "thug" in an Escalade and every impatient prick in a Beemer, used funds from refinancing (HELOC*) his McMansion.   With any justice they'll end up back in the Luv pickups, Plymouth Voyagers and Buick LeSabres they so richly deserve, in order to afford the rent on their half of the double-wide.

This seems uncharacteristically bitter. What happened to the Mr. Zen school of driving?

Nah. I don't compete with the idiots, it's not worth the stress and danger. But I do think there are an enormous number of arrogant people in this town who're going to get taken down a notch when their "investments" start eating them alive.

I can think of no other explanation why a town with a median income of $50k could have so many damned expensive cars.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
