When gas costs $4.00 a gallon, only outlaws will have SUVs.

I'm glad to hear the Mercedes was not injured. It was obviously a hate crime, attacked because of it's latino sounding name, but maybe the SUV was insane.

Time to ban SUVs.

Dang, I'm glad I don't live at the Nettleton (or whatever it's called now) anymore. That intersection was crazypants, especially when Vito's and the Quarter Lounge closed down their bars.

Just heard the press conference and the SPD is working closely with the City Attorney to immediately close down all Mercedes dealerships to keep this crime wave from spreading.

#1, what an insightful point you have there. In a world where less than half the population is gay, you mean to tell me that guessing that a random person is straight is a safe bet?

Anyway, haven't you seen The Wire?

That settles it. We simply have to take away Mr. Poe's gun.
