Down with the SUV!

Alright, I know this topic is done to death but seriously, can someone please explain to me the rationale behind purchasing and operating an SUV????? They are monstorous gas-guzzling beasts that threaten everything on the road. The are expensive to opearte, hard to park and they are not nice looking!

Yes, that's right, the SUV is an ugly vehicle.

They look like how small children draw cars, a rectangular box on wheels. They're like the big, ugly brother of cars. And yet thousands of people choose to drive these! If you're wealthy enough to be able to afford to fill that SUV up with gas and drive yourself alone to work everyday why wouldn't you buy a cooler looking vehicle? There are so many cool-looking cars out there.

This weekend I'm going to the Vespa dealership. Did you know that operating a Vespa in Calgary is cheaper than a monthly bus pass? That's not right.

But I want to beg of you, the multitudes of SUV drivers, please look out for me scooting through downtown. Or get on the bandwagon already a purchase a more reasonable vehicle.

well, if everyone else is doing it....

I'm so behind the times. But now instead of harassing the people I love with my rants I can spew them uselessly into the nether. Ah, who am I kidding? I'll still harass the people I love.

I don't know about this blog thing though. Do I want people I know to be in the know? Many people are so much more senstitive than I. What if I slip something that gets taken the wrong way? Perhaps I should be cryptic to the point where even I no longer understand what I'm trying to talk about. I mean, what if a rant involves someone I know?

Sure, there's lots of things that completely enrage me that involve perfect strangers. Although wouldn't it be funny if one of those people read a blog and realized that they were, in fact, the stranger being ranted about? If only I knew a playwright who could take that concept somewhere..............
