Okay...I've hit enough potholes lately to scrape off half my tire treads, wear out my shocks and throw my wheels out of alignment - enough already!  I'm getting quite peeved about the potholes I have to dodge every day as I drive to work and home again.  I'm glad to know that the pothole patrols are getting out to the streets and I have to tell you, they can't get these dang blasted potholes filled soon enough!
