Why?

We watched a couple lovingly park their Smart Car Saturday afternoon on 15th Street. Considering the distance they left between them and the car in front, I could only ask, “Why?”

Is the car brand new? Are they recent arrivals from exurbia where parking spaces are the size of my condo? Did they know they were violating the unwritten code-of-honorable-downtown parking by not getting as close as possible to other vehicles? Did they realize they were taking an extra space? Finally, why did they even bother to buy a Smart Car?

When you live here in Borderstan… anywhere in the Dupont-Logan-U Streeet area, you know how precious parking spots can be.
