Commerce!

My Ford Contour is sold. Hurrah! Now, to the Secretary of State (Illinois' DMV) to remit painful amounts to them for little stickers and bits of paper. I think what kills me the most is the Title fee. In Illinois, a drivers' license is $10. You lose it and need a duplicate? $5! Unbelievably cheap. Plates are $78- a bargain compared to other places. There's also the Use/Sales tax, I completely understand. But to simply transfer ownership, to simply get the title to the vehicle put into your name, it's $65. A damn gun card is like $4. I really wish they could standardize this stuff.

EDIT: FRUCTOSE! I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. I knew I'd leave my I-Pass (EZ-Pass for Illinois) in my car when I sold it. Luckily, the buyers are the nicest people in the world and will send it back. The lady called me and told me that she headed directly on a roadtrip after picking up the vehicle. That's trust.

And now, Grand Prix!
