Hey Don,

When I saw Chuck's note I knew you were in for it. First you should understand that I live in Redwood City, next to Woodside and Portola Valley where the poseurs run\u2014okay ride\u2014in packs. Every day. I look at them just as I would a pack of people walking the streets dressed in the complete team uniforms of their favorite professional football, baseball or basketball players. Complete with their names and numbers. Look, it's fine to wear the team caps, I wear a Giants cap when I go to the games. But the last time I went to my bank in Palo Alto there was a guy in line wearing complete 7-Eleven racing team regalia. Including the helmet. Everything was correct except his body. (Yuk.) He'd have looked way better in a Barry Bonds replica uniform. I have no idea what statement he was intending to make.

I just thought of this: a pack of Nextel Cup replica cars driven by people wearing replica helmets and drivers suits... Never mind.
