Is ORANGE The New BLACK ??

HOLY CRAP .. CARLTON !!! To my way of processing thought .. this particular article is the "Holy Grail" of
motorcycle/bicycle related scripts !!! Have read it three times now .. and it seems EVERY TIME I DO ......
the value of stocks I am holding has risen ... gasoline has dropped twelve-cents a gallon ... my wife calls
me Studley Do-Right ... and to top it all off ... I heard a bell ring !!!

Thanks for posting !!!

Patric, yeah it was a cool find, I'm happy to have made a contribution. I'm still looking for more source material on the Miami Merkel.

It seems the Merkle's color was yellow before they landed on orange...or maybe this reporter was color blinded from snorting too much exhaust fumes at the motorcycle race track? ;);)
