I could tell you I'm interested in cars, but that sounds all wrong in terms of their place in my life. I'm interested in a lot of things: Irish history, lesbian novels, roses, the geography of Canada, airfares to New York, how my mutual funds are doing. Cars an interest? No. Cars a drive, like sex: subterranean in some phases, idling in neutral, at other times popping the clutch and squealing right out of control down a lost highway where advertising meets wanderlust meets fetish object. http://readingcities.com/index.php/montreal/comments/love_cars/
