On my way to campus this morning, I saw this – a burnt out car on a bit of grassland near the university. Seeing cars like that makes me feel sad, as if someone has recklessly taken away someone else’s freedom just so that they can have a quick joyride around a few estates. I don’t drive and have to rely on public transport or walking, which at times can be annoying – it would be great to be able to jump in a car and be able to go there myself without having to put up with delays or walking around in the rain or after dark. I also feel sorry for the firefighters who had to be called out to deal with this, and for the police who will now have the unenviable task of finding out who the culprits were and telling the car’s owner what has happened. Andy, who lives close to where the car was abandoned, wrote about it being on fire last night and has some photos too.
Still, it’s yet another photo for my Rundown Bradford set on Flickr.
On a different note, I have a new article up on Stupid Evil Bastard about how evangelical Christians are preaching creationism in the US. It’s all a bit scary, but you’re welcome to comment over there should you wish. I tend to keep any religious posts over there since the site tends to cover that topic generally.
