Vanity plates

I understand that some people like vanity plates and generally I have no problem with them, but I saw one this morning that I found very disturbing. On the plate it said "Sept11th", I am not sure if this was supposed to be a reminder or just showing their support for the victims. But I found this a bit disturbing, I have seen plenty of bumper stickers that are reminders or other thoughts on Sept. 11th, 2001, and those do not bother me, but this license plate seemed to be tactless and crude to me. The other surprising thing is that there were not a lot of other patriotic or political bumper stickers that I could see, just a small flag in the right, bottom corner of the rear window. It just seemed wrong somehow to me that this is what you wish your license plate to read.

The other day I pulled up next to this gigantic Lexus SUV, looked over, and it has a peace symbol sticker on the gas tank. I was a little irked by that. I can see why you would be a lil irked by the vanity plate, it is a lil crude. We're all going to remember it, like we're going to remember Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima, there isn't any need to stick it on the ass end of your car.
