Cars as toys, with sad results.
Cars are so common place that we forget how powerful they are. We often think of them as toys, we act as they are toys, the marketing of the cars reinforces this. While the world had a huge reminder this weekend with the Tiger Woods incident. Any how many celebrities have lost their lives to the power of cars? Princess Diana, Jackson Pollack, James Dean, Steve Prefontaine, the list goes on.
But what gets to me is how senseless something like what happened in Marin this past weekend when a family of four was killed by a teenager driving 100 mph ran a stop light and ran into them and died himself.
For some reason the thrill seems lost on me.
