  1. Wow. What the hell are you going to do with that? Put it on Craigslist for parts? Rattlecan over the Radio station ID? Dumbdumbs

  2. I’m sure H & T will blame it on liberal Dems and how soft they are on crime. Not! I stopped listening to them years ago because they got so politically right wing. Seriously; why would anyone want that van, other than used parts? Hope they catch the moron car thief ASAP.

    1. I got XM radio when it first came out and haven’t listened to an actual radio station since.
