Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Kim was a Ford man - who knew?

Was that a Lincoln we saw hauling deceased North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il's coffin?  Indeed it was.  As a matter of fact, the Communist funeral procession included two three of the gas-guzzling Ford products.

Just to make sure we weren't seeing some crude third-world copy, we checked with an actual automotive expert.  Bradford Wernle confirms our observation:
As mourners wailed hysterically by the road, a procession of unmistakable luxury limos rolled past. First came the Lincoln bearing Kim's flag-draped coffin on the roof. A second Lincoln limousine bore a giant poster with a likeness of the Dear Leader; and a third, an enormous funeral wreath.
The hearses bore Lincoln's unique vertical cross design on the hood, so the cars were not knockoffs.
