Stick It

I went for a long ride yesterday afternoon, and during the course of a couple hours on the road, I came to do a complete 180 on those "family" stickers you see on cars and mini vans.

I grew to hate them.  Too many.  Too cute.  They're everywhere.  They're a fad.  I hate fads.

Then, just as my trip was coming to a close, it hit me.  I should be happy there are so many family units out there.  Sociologists will point to the disintegration of the family as one of the many factors in drug abuse, crime, a lack of civility and manners, etc...  The family should be celebrated, and if you choose to do that by smacking some silly stickers on the back of your car, go for it.
