The Karma of the Escalade

The other day picking up my daughter from school I was preceded by a Cadillac Escalade. For those not in the know, it is the largest SUV on the market. Its numberplate read:


I am trying not to judge. I’m not judging.  I have decided not to judge.  It’s hazardous, anyway, to judge behavior without knowing the causes of it, the wounds behind it, or the joys.

But… is laughing judging?

I laughed because, really now, it was funny.

But I admit it, I did shake my head, just a little.

  1. The kharma comes when he’s gassing up at $4+ a gallon or paying 2-3 times for produce because of global-warming-induced crop failures, etc…

  2. ‘sokay. I have the privilege/misfortune of living in the vicinity of some very wealthy people who are quite convinced they can avoid cancer by eating organic vegetables, and avert climatic apocalypse by using “green” cleaning products for their mansions. My neighbors drive a hybrid – but they are embroiled in a local controversy because they want a variance from the township to install a heliport on their 2,000 acre estate. I’m not kidding.
