Out of the Blue

Got the call from the dealer yesterday, and as is often the case around these parts, the opinion offered by the majority was correct, the problem in my truck is in the light switch itself. This does make sense as the simplest common point between the dash lights and the tail lights, though it is reassuring nonetheless to confirm it's not one of those mysterious gremlin situations. I won't get the truck back until today though, as they didn't have the part on hand.

Thanks to all you shadetree mechanics who offered advice on this, and of course, apologies to all the real men (and women) out there disappointed that I didn't do this the "right" way, be it picking the part from a junk yard, repairing what's broken with duct tape, carving a new switch out of a redwood tree, or just plain driving in the dark... I definitely lose Steve McQueen cool points here. But at least if I'm heading towards you on a darkened road, you will know it.

What ever happened tp parents monitoring their kids and interacting with them? You see all these ads about parents interacting witht heir kids so that they know where they are and what they are doing so that they dont smoke drugs etc, but still parents like to blame the 'evil' corporations and the 'filth' they push.

V-Chip anyone? the one censorship piece I actually agree with, turn it on when u want it, turn it off when you dont, censoring yourself is better than forcing your beliefs and view upon others.

Also why not be true to American culture? come up with a godo show that has strong moral and ethical values that does not swear and show nudity. Competition basically, if an individual decides to watch smut and not the moral show, then what right does abnother have to interfere with it?

None, unless.. they are their parents in which case their are plenty of options to restrict this, such as V-chip, not subscribing to certain channells etc.

Competition people, its the heart and soul of American culture, not government intervention.

Reminds me of that story of a radio station onwer trying to get regulations placed on sattalite radio so as to restrict Howard Stern. Rather than bringing in Government regulation, why not try to COMPETE?
