For All Those Who've Ever Wanted to Sell Everything, Buy a Fast Car and Disappear ...

... I present to you the story of one Richard Jordan, a local man whose tale of traveling cross-country in a Lamborghini Gallardo has become a smash hit over on Jalopnik since it was posted yesterday. Friend of Unfair Park The Big Guy sent it my way late Thursday, along with this summation to explain its appeal here and, clearly, elsewhere: "From Dallas, sells his business, buys a house for girl, they break up, chucks it all, sells all his shit, buys a lambo, drives the lambo all over the place, gets 54 tickets, loses house, blows up car engine, returns to Dallas to build motorcycles." That, right there, that's poetry.
