Talk about the crappy things that happen while you're sitting around sipping Ovaltine spiked with Ancient Age and contemplating the probability of the release of season one of "Small Wonder" on DVD: A DC-area county impound lot went up in a flamin' ball of inferno-esque fiery-fire yesterday. 37 towed cars were destroyed in the Gaithersburg, MD conflagration, and we're wondering which is worse having your car burt to a crisp because you were parked in a tow-away zone, or having it stolen and abandoned, only to be burnt to a crisp. You pays yer money and you takes yer choice, we suppose.
