Now if that isn’t the Navigator calling the Escalade big…

Today, after a concert at my children’s elementary school, I got into my suv, looked up at the windshield, and saw THIS NOTE! It was facing in at me from under the windshield wiper.

And I don’t even LIVE in Armonk.

    Ah! I had meant to put up this nice little quote, and nearly forgot…

    …nowhere is moralization more of a hazard than in our greatest global challenge. The threat of human-induced climate change has become the occasion for a moralistic revival meeting. In many discussions, the cause of climate change is overindulgence (too many S.U.V.’s) and defilement (sullying the atmosphere), and the solution is temperance (conservation) and expiation (buying carbon offset coupons). Yet the experts agree that these numbers don’t add up: even if every last American became conscientious about his or her carbon emissions, the effects on climate change would be trifling, if for no other reason than that two billion Indians and Chinese are unlikely to copy our born-again abstemiousness.

    Where/how did you park?

    Steven – I fail to see how that is important, don’t you? I mean, maybe I parked over the line and took up more than one spot, but that doesn’t make me arrogant or “so armonk” (i.e., I think this refers to “spoiled and entitled” around these parts of northern westchester). It makes me a crappy parker who would rather not bang into someone else’s car when pulling into or out of her parking spot, which, sadly, seems to happen to me, apparently (see, e.g., my run in with the law earlier this month).

    The person who writes that note is the one who is arrogant, is she not (clearly, it is a she, because, well, clearly, it is)? Because, guess what? I am able to deduce exactly who it is, and it is hilarious to me, because if she knew it was my car, she never would have written the note, and if she knew I would KNOW who wrote the note, she never would have written the note, and she must think that whoever is the owner of the car on whom she wrote the note would never figure out it was SHE who wrote it. Arrogant. Angry. Stupid. The behavior, not the person, whom I actually like very much!

    Laksmi, you have been increasingly hostile lately. And you and suxen are like so cliquey, like, oh my god. What is the deal with that?

    hah! A man of modest means like myself has never lived in marblehead or newton! look at you dropping the boston knowledge, though!

  11. Yoga Chickie says:

    Laura, we are no longer friends.

  12. Yoga Chickie says:

    I see that Laura and Susan have left. Seem’s they’ve gone back to high school. Bye girls! See you at the prom. Oh wait, girls like you don’t go to prom.

    Ouch. Maybe it’s better to get no comments at all (shameless plug for my blog implied) than to get a serious case of the nasty readers.
