God, I hate to say it, but the first thing I think of when someone says CARS is no longer that amazingly funny site that John Moltz runs. Yeah, I’ve been at Disney just long enough to get really messed up that way. Even still, when I caught the news that he was shutting things down, I was pretty bummed. It was a daily read. Or maybe a weekly read where I went through each day, but I still made sure to read each day anyway because I’d be snickering, chuckling, or something. Maybe coughing. Hard to tell sometimes.

And yes, Gus did actually make me get him an autographed copy of a picture of The Entity. Speaking of which, John hasn’t been up here in a while. Maybe we should invite him to another Xcoder after-meeting to make sure he remembers why he doesn’t want to be a programmer…
