    Because silly, having your own car, which you have to drive is so, (pardon my oxymoron), "pedestrian".

    And then there's the cost of parking....:eek:

    I have a car, but I only inhabit lower caste places with it, my hood, Walmart, Home Depot, Acme, Shoprite, and Giant supermarkets. Anyplace with a free big lot, but not at Christmas.
