When I was unfortunate enough to roll my Mazda Protege back in February of 2008, I replaced it with a 99 Ford Contour.  Yes, I know what F.O.R.D. stands for.  I have discovered something with this car.  The broken window theory (ignoring little problems, like broken windows, leads to decline/decay in neighborhoods) which has been cracked may actually bode true in the case of my car.

Ok, perhaps not so much, but I just needed to rant a little.  At least I now am the proud owner of an “eastside” car, I now blend.  If you live in Des Moines you know what I mean.
