More pollution; today it was petrol flowing down Gardiners creek, it all seemed to be coming out of a drain in the golf course, maybe they overfilled a lawn-mower… It was enough to annoy me about though, and send off an email to the City of Monash asking them to clean up the crap.

Gotta love it: An extract from “High and Mighty,” Kevin Bradsher’s book about 4WDs (SUVs) in America.

Who’s been buying SUVs since auto makers turned them into family vehicles? They tend to be people who are insecure and vain, they’re frequently nervous about their marriages, and uncomfortable about parenthood. They often lack confidence in their driving skills. Above all, they’re apt to be self-centred and self-absorbed, with little interest in their neighbours or communities. No, that’s not a cynic talking, that’s the auto industry’s own market researchers and executives.
