Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

A few months ago Leonard and I saw an SUV with an unusually-placed US flag sticker -- on the gas tank door. I thought that was a clever political statement. Then, yesterday, Leonard and I saw a car or two with a peeing-Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes) decal on the gas tank door. Has the gas tank door simply become, like the rear windshield, another place for bumper stickers and decals? Or is he urinating into the gas tank with that wicked grin?
