Probably in his 30's living in mom's basement, hence the sense of accomplishment in spray painting stop signs.

He's right though, those damned blue collar yuppies with their 50 hour work weeks, their hourly wages, clogging up the roads with their ford taurus' and pick-up trucks, wearing those pretentious blue jeans and flannel shirts.....who do they think they are?

A tip of the hat to someone thinking outside the box with this brilliant idea. Did they ever publish this?

What a tool this kid was. I wonder if the friends are still putting plastic flowers at the site of his accident?

The boy was killed committing a criminal act.

If he was killed robbing a bank, would people say the same things ?

Ah, the Great Classics. This one ranks right up there with the Rhode Island kid who got killed kneeling on the sidewalk building a memorial to the 14 year old car thief, or almost any one of the kids killed on a quad thread.
