Wouldn’t you stop, open the passenger window, and shoot this Pontiac LeMans? I sure did, even if its occupants don’t seem any too happy about it. Maybe it’s because they’re parked right next to the downtown Library, where illicit activities do occur with regularity, to the point that there are now loudspeakers blasting classical music unto the sidewalk. The first time we encountered that, Stephanie remarked how nice it was to hear classical music on the street. Quite effective, too. Anyway, these folks most likely aren’t here to pick up a clean wardrobe. And just as I pulled off, a hearty “fuck off” could be heard above the opera aria. The sounds of the city, even a smallish one.
