  •  Yeah, I've seen a post with similar questions (5+ / 0-)

    called 'CT' when, near as I can tell, it's the mere act of asking questions that earns the CT sobriquet. Or maybe it's the 'tone' with which the questions are perceived to be asked. But I agree with you that 'Questions are always good.'

      with many arguing my CT status...

      My Questions are not worded as well as this diarist's are. But same gist.

        that thread. But I wasn't aware of DKos' bias against CT either. Either way, I did not feel your questions were CT per se and I thought and think some of them need to be asked.

        I believe one should always 'Follow the money.' And I'd like to know about the finances of the two brothers and how they come to be driving such nice cars (seeing as I'm driving a '93 Nissan beater).

        •  thanks. (0+ / 0-)

          2002 Honda myself, so I get your question. I always wonder how these folks have nice cars and no job to speak of.

          Often, clients will mention that they're thinking of selling their car to their mechanic. The mechanic knows what cars have been well cared for, and can mention it to anyone he knows looking for another car. But he also may be looking for himself, or his kids.

          The customer gives him a good deal, knowing that the courtesy will be repaid over the long haul.

          Sometimes, it's as simple as that.
