Bad Drivers

Dear Sucksters ...

I recently moved to a small
town to get away from heavy
traffic, and city life. I
have had it with stupid
@$$ho!e drivers. Lately, they
bother me even when I'm not
driving. Take this morning
for instance. I was getting
dressed for work and all of a
sudden I can hear someone
blowing their car horn. I
don't know if that person got
cut off or what, but the horn
didn't stop for at least five
minutes - not until someone
called the cops. And then all
I could hear was this guy
yelling about another driver.

I like my mornings quiet and
stress free. That is why I
moved to a small town. I was
quite surprised (the first
week after I moved) to hear
loud Har(d)ley's driving down
the road at 6 a.m. and again
late at night. I guess I
should be thankful that only
lasts during the warm months.
(Rolling my eyes) Doesn't
anyone have any respect
anymore? Does anyone think
about the fact that what they
are doing might affect
others? I can't understand
why people want to make other
people miserable by being
obnoxious. I think I am so
angry about it because I
don't understand it. If
anyone reading this is one of
those people, please tell me
why you do it. Maybe it's
some kind of sick twisted
anger thing you're working

Jen Cummings

Speaking of sick twisted
anger things you're working
out, it's time for you to
stop blaming others for your
unhappiness ... unless you're
going to do it more
comically. Like we do.

Have you considered hiring an

I love the idea of a movie.

We've already got Buddy
Hackett signed on for the

Chase could maybe play the

Salon review of Suck book

Dear Sucksters:

Gee. Salon didn't like your
new book. I suppose you guys
can somehow deal with that.
I'll buy a copy anyway; my
mother's been asking me about

Oddly enough, there really
used to be intelligent life
on that site. Now they have a
love-life expert who - gasp -
discovers that men are more
interested in anonymous sex
than are women, and a sex
expert who discovers - double
gasp - that Hollywood is
incapable of realistically
portraying pornographers. Oh
yes, they've discovered
children. (They can discover
mine.) And travel; travel is
nice. Good way to get a few
ads as well.

Every now and then they print
something literate by
somebody or other and I'm
fooled into thinking the site
is literate when, in fact,
they've just gotten lucky.
They don't get it, do they?
We're looking forward to your
reply. You ARE going to reply
aren't you?

Alan Kornheiser

Reply to you? Of course, we
always have time to reply
to you, Alan.

Salmon stands as our eternal
shrine to those People Who
Read and Mothers Who Think.
Let us know when there's
something new to say about
them, and we're all over it.
Until then, we'll go on
reading Cintra's elegant
in silent awe.

Though it blends in, it smells

word. How about a damn week's
worth of columns just on
SPILLED! One could name a

We await departure.
