OPINION — About twenty years ago, in Mason, Texas, I bought a 4WD Chevy Luv pickup with Montana plates that looked like it had lost a fight with a Brahman bull. It had, in fact, hit a moose, which was probably worse. There was no part of the body that was not rusted, dented, perforated, torn, bent, deformed, or missing. A lot was missing. It was difficult to look directly at this vehicle without experiencing acute eyeball discomfort.
