Life in Hock

We live in a society driven by debt. Cars, for example, have become hugely expensive (even on the low end) relative to what people can afford - because of the easy availability...

The Self-Driving Catch-22

There are laws in many states forbidding “distracted” driving - but what about the laws that encourage it? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given GM - and presumably, other car...

It’s Not Just VW…

Usually, when a Porsche gets permanently parked it's because it's a treasured museum piece -  retired from heroic deeds on street or track (sometimes both). But the 1,500 Porsches that have been...

Trump vs. the Zampolits

If the Clovers are in a panic, it is probably time to get happy. And they are very panicky, indeed. About (cue Emperor Palpatine voice) a great many things. One of...
