Whoa, there!  Way too dramatic, in my opinion.  Deve is after something
great and transcendent here.  He's taking an abandoned and deteriorating
thing and resurrecting it to a state of perfection which it probably never
had before.  To me this is human nature at it's best.  Of course, if you're
pessimistically inclined, you can view it as a futile effort, after all
scientists tell us that the sun will burn us all up in a few billion years,
etc. etc. (fill in your favorite apocalypse).  But we'd all be living in
caves if guys like Deve didn't see the bigger picture.

And even if you don't see it like he does, there's no cause to say stuff
like "how sad" etc.  Have a little respect.

Hooray for Deve and his A-number-one truck to be!  Deve is a very classy
