“But people only want small cars when gas is expensive! And it wasn’t expensive before! Of course, we could have raised gasoline taxes and reduced the deficit. Reducing the deficit is the thing that everybody says they want more than anything else in the whole wide world. Except cars that waste gasoline. They want cars that waste gasoline just a little bit more than reducing the deficit that they say will bankrupt the nation into Third World status and ruin the lives of their very children and grandchildren. That’s a worthy concern, too, to be sure, except when compared to a car that wastes gasoline.”

I must be sane because I drive a Toyota Corolla. With a stick shift. And I live in Los Angeles, so I guess that evens things out. Somehow.
