Four thoughts I had while running to the grocery store yesterday afternoon

Accelerating through S-turns on entrance ramps in the rain is made much more interesting when you know that you’re due for tie-rods soon.

At 3.79/gallon for premium,our next car will most definitely use regular unleaded.  This makes me sad,as comparatively few wagons out there fit that requirement,and I don’t want a crossover if I can avoid it.

As I was driving,I saw a driver’s ed car festooned with signs.  At first I thought they read “Panamanian Driving School,”which threw me.  I figure a certain amount of highway driving time is required these days,but that seemed excessive.  After I had that thought,I realized the sign read “Panamerican Driving School.”

I like seeing county names on other state’s license plates,and wish Wisconsin did the same.  Of course,I have no idea how they’d fit Trempealeau on the plate.  I’d also like to see the state go back to solid color plates,but that probably will never happen.  Barring that,the design above,part of a larger rebrand,would be a major improvement.
