I'm removing you guys from my favorites list for the following reasons;

1) Story lead ins that not funny and a pain in the ass to read. Seriously, why not just talk about automotive news instead of sitting there for 15 minutes trying to think of something witty to say? You're not funny... at all. Quit thumbing your asses to fantasies of GM's demise and write some
columns that aren't just a regurgitation of someone elses work.
2) little original content.

That's it. This year, we're totally hiring a professional lighting designer.
