Conspiracy Theory

KGB Plate

Last week, some nameless fool stole my license plate from my parked car, prompting the need for a trip to the DMV Saturday morning to obtain a new one. As I waited in the long, seemingly eternal DMV line, I wondered to myself what would prompt someone to steal a single license plate in a state that requires two per car?

It didn’t take long to determine that greater forces were at work. My new license plate (not a vanity plate, thank you very much) just “happened” to bear three all-too-familiar letters: K-G-B.

Hmm, let’s see here:

  • I write a blog called TruePRAVDA
  • I still speak a smattering of Russian
  • Years ago, I hung out in places where the KGB still exists
  • I work in Washington, D.C.
  • I now drive a foreign car with KGB on the license plate

Lest any certain foreign government agencies get the wrong idea, my loyalties lie with this Red, White, and Blue, not that one.

    I’d guess that your new tag is a hotter item to be stolen with those specific K-G-B letters together. Of course, as you stated, in VA one must steal both tags to have something of value.
