Apropos of I'm-not-sure-what, today's New York Sun dedicates the majority of its op/ed page to an excerpt of my 2003 book, Honku: The Zen Antidote to Road Rage (an excellent holiday gift, I might add). Below are some excerpts from the Sun, including some excellent poems written by visitors to my web site, honku.org. The Comments section is open for new submissions...

Accelerator
Irresponsibility
Municipal Court

Elected morons
big SUV tax credits
don't get me started

Is it profiling
to say, "Dude in the Hummer
is an idiot"?

Morning forecast says:
It's another "bad air day"
so try not to breathe

Nissan "Armada?!"
How 'bout a Dodge "Titanic?"
A Ford "Hindenburg?"

I let you over
now where is my thank-you wave?
Honda Uncivic

Ah, New York, New York,
those horns are stressing me out -
stop spreadin' the news

Face it, city boy:
Your truck is a Mountaineer,
but you are SO not.

You from New Jersey
honking in front of my house
in your SUV
