Speaking of breaking the rules- check out what looters in Baghdad were helping themselves to- petrol from military stockpiles.
Some pulled their vehicles up and filled up the tank.
Looters were not able to make it into the main fenced area of the refinery though. A handful of employees is credited with keeping looters at bay until U-S marines arrived.

the kids are not happy in the back seat it's not fun for anybody."
SOME CARS NOW COME WITH BUILT-IN D-V-D PLAYERS AND A HOOKUP FOR AN X BOX OR PLAY STATION ..LIKE IN THE INFINITI FX45. WIRELESS HEADPHONES AND A REMOTE CONTROL MAKE IT EASY FOR LITTLE HANDS TO HANDLE. AND FOR THE CARS THAT DON'T HAVE D-V-D'S, A PORTABLE PLAYER IS EASILY INSTALLED.
