Every time I see two not-quite-symmetrical "POWER OF PRIDE" bumper stickers of the back of a blue-smoke-burning Ford Windstar or some such domestic crapmoble with the rippling red stripes faded off almost completely, I get an ever-increasing sense of how hollow a statement that was for the driver to make. That's all I'm saying with that title.


Seriously, HC is in such good hands with today's youth, see?

And in further mutated tangents...
