Foam-flecked ravers

  1. Regarding the “econo-coffins” comment: the passenger death rate per mile for SUVs is higher than that of passenger cars. So anybody buying an SUV so their family will be safer is basically putting their loved ones at greater risk. Oops!

  2. I think it’s really all about the cachet of driving the SUV. It’s certainly not because it’s practical in most cases (although there are exceptions). Ideally, someone in the ad business would figure out a way to make it “cooler” to be economical than it is to drive a tank.
    But that might require an alignment with traditional economics a la Puritan values….. although now that I think of it, maybe that’s a place the left and right could merge?
    Nahhhh……. never happen……
