That sounds like more of an indictment of the company you keep...I wouldn't hold up people's ignorance of something as a model for the world.

Indy 500 is world famous...easily, but it doesn't give people an actual good introduction to the city of Indianapolis.

500 is one leg in the triple crown of racing with le mans and monaco. It is known worldwide. The 500 being a memorial day national tradition (national television) for longer than you've probably been alive would mean you and most of the people you know live sheltered lives.

How are you hurting my feelings? I have no connection to racing or Indianapolis - just a connection to logic and honesty. You don't hurt anyone but yourself when you post nonsense - and LOL at typing in slang!
