Re: Toyota Sudden Acceleration Theories Crash Into Reality

Megan McArdle at the Atlantic posts an excerpt from P.J. O’Rourke’s Parliament of Whores that takes us right back to the Audi sudden acceleration fiasco.  If you haven’t read it, the book is fantastic.  It should be required reading in every PoliSci 101 course. 

As the lady says: “The most depressing thing to me about all of this is that if you change a few of the names, O’Rourke’s article could have been written in 2010 rather than 1989. In fact, the same could be said of almost the entire book.”  Alas, quite true.
