    ARKANSAS -- A series of hundreds of Arkansas-issued license plates are being pulled out of circulation over letter combinations that some claim are racist.

    "I couldn't imagine putting this on my car," motorist Alice Kunce said as she held up her "018-NGR" license plate.

    Kunce said she found the letter combination offensive.

    "She looked at it and said, 'Why not,'" Kunce said. "I said, 'Look at it, what does it say?' and she looked at it and said, 'Oh.'"

    The state decided to pull the entire series of plates after being made aware of the letter combination.

    "Some folks might think it OK, others find it offensive," Roger Duren of the Office of Motor Vehicles said. "So, if anyone does, anything offensive we try not to issue."
    What isn't offensive anymore? Why isn't stupidity considered offensive?

    NGR

    I'm sure that you could get that in Texas, if you're willing to wait on the list. :D

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
