"New York, NY - All things must come to an end, and so apparently it now is for America's love affair with the automobile. Swept off her feet more than 100 years ago with promises of freedom, comfort and status, Ms. America has now had a change of heart. "The oil addiction, the misguided foreign affairs, the skyrocketing bills it's just gotten to be too much," said Lady Liberty in a recent statement."

"Lady Liberty will formally announce her break up -- and her big plans for the future -- at the NY International Auto Show on Friday, March 21st at 10:30 a.m. Reverend Billy will be present to both annul her current "dysfunctional" marriage, and will also be on hand to wed Ms. Liberty to not one but three suitors who have been vying for her affection for the past several decades: Walking, Bicycling and Mass Transit."
