So today I was doing some running around at work and stopped behind a car with bumper stickers plastered all over the back of it (they're not just for bumpers anymore!) I had time, I read them. And laughed! There was one saying "Local Spirit!" and another "Support Your Local Economy!" and even a "Michigan, Recall Rick!" (Rick Snyder, our Governor, the guy who just signed RTW legislation, though I'm sure this was from one of the earlier failed recall attempts).

What kind of car was it? A Honda of course.

Now I can almost excuse a Toyota with those stickers in Ann Arbor since we do have a Toyota research center just outside of town. But Honda? I'm not aware of ANY Honda manufacturing in the state. I could be wrong, but my FIL would NOT be impressed if I showed up at his house with those stickers on my car driving a Honda. The person driving was taking their life in their hands should they drive east towards Detroit in that car.

/I counted ten stickers on the back of the car, not close to a record but a valiant effort!
