Can we get rid of the Florida manatee plates also?

This post at BTD reminded me of a few news stories recently. There are cautionary attempts to get rid of license plates that say things like “Protect Life” with a picture of a baby next to it. If opponents of the plates succeed in getting rid of them, can we also get rid of the damned manatee plates on similar grounds? I don’t see any real difference in the two; both are value judgments (wholly normative) and equally objectionable, if either is objectionable.

Apologies for the light blogging of late. I’ve been prairie-doggin’ it lately, due to an avalanche of school work.

“Prairie-dogging?” I know folks up at State like a bit of mudding and cow-tipping, but it’s the first I’ve heard of this pastime. ☺


I’ve been trying to work that phrase into a post for a while now. Just picture a blogger that’s so up to his ass in work that he just barely manages to get his head above ground to peak.

I heard the phrase in a movie three or four years ago in reference to someone needing to crap, badly, thus he was “prairie-doggin’” it.

I don’t want to give up my “Protect Wild Dolphins” license plate. The color matches quite well with my blue truck:)
