The morning starts off typical enough. Snooze three times, a half-asleep rush to get out the door, forgot my lunch on the counter. All of this would be fine if it weren’t for the car I was stuck behind for 8 blocks on Santa Monica Boulevard with the “Charlton Heston for President” bumper sticker. There would be a picture if coffee would have been involved first, but alas. If you only chose to put ONE bumper sticker on your car, why that one? If anyone has a picture of this or sees a car with a bumper sticker that is just crying out to be rear-ended, please send it along!
