SUVs and Cigarettes

We don't much care for gas-guzzling SUVs here in the Bay Area (although it seems just about everyone drives one). And we don't care much for cigarette smoking neither. So this story about a Ford Expedition burning to its smoldering frame must have all the Bay Area libs doing little happy dances.

It seems that a young San Francisco man, smoking a cigarette while cruising across the Bay Bridge this morning, went to toss his lit butt out the window. It must have caught a wierd draft because it blew back into the Expedition and set the interior ablaze. The man jumped out and was uninjured but the truck was a total loss.

I must admit, it is kind of funny.
