Yesterday morning (friday 8/10) I found myself stuck in the backed up traffic on the southbound 5 as the freeway was stopped due to a big rig fire.
looking around at the other cars trapped with me I noticed that on 7 of them had some kind of memorial of a passed love one on their back windows. There were a couple who were #1 Laker Fan, 1 that was #1 Duck's fan and the rest dedicated to a child, spouse or parent.
I know it was happenstance to come across so many at one time but each day I normally see 1 or 2.
When did it suddenly become the in thing to "dedicate" one's car as a rolling memorial on wheels?
