All there is to it

I may park my car anywhere I please, but I also pay my goddamn parking tickets. Just saying!

Is this a contrived allegory for the American, erm, democratization of Iraq?

I hope not; the literary fuse in my brain has suffered anough as is.

Poor Assad and his fuse!
Nope, this has nothing to do with Iraq. This is a personal post so to speak, directed at someone who reads this blog. It's a good allegory to give though for doing what you please yet always taking responbility for the consequences. You know?

You don't have tow-away zones in Egypt?

Not as such, Craig.

As with so many things in Egypt, ad-hoc initiative substitutes for formal organization. What tends to happen is, you park where you'd like and some shabby guy who "runs" that street watches over your wheels and probably has some arrangement measured in points with the assigned cop.

I wrote something a while back on cairo traffic, you might want to have a look-see.

Sandmonkey, if you're going to shill for Bushco then you can at least be original about it. I call for poetry; write an ode to the American democratization in the Middle East in Limeric format.
