confront climate disruption and energy shortages of petroleum, the American
auto industry is adding testosterone to the current line of SUVs to decrease
their gas mileage further, if that were possible.

We be living in a nation gone mad.

But the front page story in last week's Automotive News ( a trade paper, was all about an apparently-permanent, structural decline in the market share of GM and Ford.

Also interesting is the ability of Ford, at least, to harvest kudos from gullible enviro interests for token, meaningless statements when their actual policies are entirely different.

Well, happy Easter? Irreligious as I am, one could argue that this country is in need of some supernatural form of salvation....
