bullseye! On King of the Hill last night, Bobby ticketed his family for environmental infractions. As suburbs sprawl and Americans grow fatter, so do their cars--bloated SUV bodies on truck chassis, 8 mpg grocery-getters lined up like pigs at a trough in 7-11 parking lots. A third of the commercials were for trucks, minivans, cars. The conditioning runs deep--how does one overcome the implanted need? Today I saw a mint '71 Dodge Dart Swinger for sale, a thousand bucks. I ran a mental check on my bank account. In high school on Long Island in the mid-80's, we used to make fun of Darts. Maybe that's why I want it, even though I don't need a car.
