Bumper Nuts

LeRoy Myers, Jr. doesn’t like nuts. He doesn’t care if they’re drop forged and powder coated. It makes no difference that they aren’t made of cheap fading  plastic.  And he isn’t impressed that they have a lifetime  warranty on their finish.  He just doesn’t like bumper nuts.

"People are making a joke out of it," Myers said yesterday. "But I
think it’s a pretty serious problem. You have body parts hanging from
the hitches of cars. We’ve crossed a line."

And the line is the boundary between common sense and a dumb idea.

Myers, a general contractor who very strictly forbids any form of anatomically correct body parts to hang from the rear of any of his company’s vehicles, represents
Washington and Alleghany counties in Maryland’s most rural corner. He
said he acted at the request of a constituent who was distressed by
what he saw as he drove down a highway. 

At least he’s listening to his constituents.

Not much going on in Washington and Alleghany counties, except the Hagerstown City Farmer’s Market every Saturday. 

One event did catch the North Coast Curmudgeon’s eye – There’s a free lecture featuring a discussion of what colonist were drinking at home and in taverns that’s scheduled for Wednesday, July 11, 2007 at the Jonathan Hager House & Museum. 

Drinking? the next thing you know, they’ll be putting fake testicles on their trailer hitches!
