It is not so much pride here, it is just being obnoxious. Our law enforcement has been cut back so--we need to save money and do useless things like--I don't know, the money disappears and so does the services that we pay our taxes on! These idiots with their cars, you would think they would care about what they do but I guess that is asking way too much. Be a Jerk and care less about anything is their mantra. I have my doubts about humanity at times. A motor bike would be nice but not one of those things that sounds like a fleet of diesel trucks! How fast and loud do you really need to be? With our weather here, bikes are good in the warmer climes but not here in the Winter. Small cars would be great but the snow can really pile up in a hurry, again I advocate a tram system but that will never happen here although 70 years ago we had such systems, you still can walk the roadbeds through the country areas. Michigan is home of the Auto and the Auto rules here and no not in our best interest either.
I will take your word on the Speedo but I have my doubt, I think you underestimate yourself in that area. You are a heartthrob. I respect your view on it and won't make an issue, but, don't give up your Leather pants or Jeans or Coats, ever!!!
