I saw this horrible car...


...a couple of weeks ago in front of the Tropical Cafe on Parkman/Sunset. Put horrible in quotes, because the car isn't horrible, actually. And it made me laugh, which made me feel a twinge of guilt, as I suspected sincerity on the part of the writer. But I was annoyed, too, because if I didn't already know that "everything is horrible," would now be the time to learn it? At Sunset and Parkman, in front of Sun Lake Drugs and the Silversun liquor store? There is such a thing as too many words -- too many messages rolling around on wheels, getting fat on billboards, crowding my eyes, blocking the view. It's an overgrown thicket, this landscape of words! Someone get a word whacker!
