Contribute to license plate bloat!

Normally the John Kelly’s Washington column makes me want to stab myself in the eye, although marginally less than Bob Levey’s column did. However I am willing to put aside my enmity to point out today’s column talking about a vanity license plate in danger of not being added to the roster. We all know about my sick fascination with license plates by now, so I felt like I should give a little back and show you this one which is angling to be added to the roster of over 180 plate options here in VA. If realtors, bowlers, and fans of the wild turkey (and not the kind from the bottle) can have plates, why not fans of peace?

VA won’t commit to the plate unless 350 people pre-register and commit to it – just not worth the money otherwise, apparently. It’s hard to believe any idea gets rejected, but a number failed to reach the threshold.

I wonder if Wayan would be willing to quiz those with Friends of Tibet plates to see if they’re sufficiently well-informed by his standards to have the plates?

    I’m SHOCKED that 350 people signed up for the bowler one.

    Ingen – come on. We’re talking BOWLING here! It’s at the cornerstone of America, unlike peace. The foundign fathers bowled. Did they engage in peace? No, they waged wars.

    There you go.

    I couldn’t believe the choices of plates I had when we moved here. Up in MA, where I was stationed until recently, you had a choice of “this or nothing, you hump.” It’s nice to see so many designs of plates here. It helps me not miss the north, not that I needed the help.
