Good morning, Netizens...

If we could change history department:

If you stop and think about it, we should get down on our knees and thank Honda and other Japanese auto manufacturers for preparing us for these high fuel costs. If the people in Detroit were the sole authority over what we drive, we would all still be driving Hummers.

I was shocked to learn from a car salesman at the Hummer dealership in Liberty Lake they are still selling a lot of new Hummers every day, all that get between 9 and 10 MPG going down the road.

"If you can afford a Hummer, you can afford the gas to drive it," the salesman I spoke with quipped with a pearly white grin stated.

It must be nice to be so rich you don't care what fuel costs.

Can you think of any justification for driving a gas hog, regardless of the brand name?
