Contribute to license plate bloat!

Normally the John Kelly’s Washington column makes me want to stab myself in the eye, although marginally less than Bob Levey’s column did. However I am willing to put aside my enmity to point out today’s column talking about a vanity license plate in danger of not being added to the roster. We all know about my sick fascination with license plates by now, so I felt like I should give a little back and show you this one which is angling to be added to the roster of over 180 plate options here in VA. If realtors, bowlers, and fans of the wild turkey (and not the kind from the bottle) can have plates, why not fans of peace?

VA won’t commit to the plate unless 350 people pre-register and commit to it – just not worth the money otherwise, apparently. It’s hard to believe any idea gets rejected, but a number failed to reach the threshold.

I wonder if Wayan would be willing to quiz those with Friends of Tibet plates to see if they’re sufficiently well-informed by his standards to have the plates?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
