When my husband and I went shopping yesterday, we found ourselves following a particular van for miles. The rear window of the van had one of those little “Calvin” cartoon characters urinating on the words “My Ex.” There was also a large sticker right in the middle of the rear window with the logo of the Dodge Ram pick up truck. It said, “Watch my Dodge while I Ram your girl.” Charming, huh? I don’t usually bemoan the “coarsening” of our culture (in fact I often enjoy it!) but I found this example utterly grotesque.
