but you're not entitled to your own facts. This comment of Thomas Sowell, I believe, ought to be provided to Senatrix Dianne Feinstein, who recently commented to the Senate:
" The fact of the matter is that Detroit has done nothing about mileage efficiency for the past 20 years and the time has come."
Let's test this hypothesis. In 1987, a Suburban was lucky to get about 15mpg on the highway. Today, that same vehicle gets 21mpg, and tows 40% more than its 1987 counterpart. Is a 40% improvement in fuel economy "nothing"? Apparently in the world of Dianne Feinstein, improving your results 40% in multiple areas counts for nothing. I'm guessing that the sun is green on her planet.
Feinstein also might want to remember why so many people--like herself--drive SUVs. A great part of the reason is that the station wagon was made impractical by federal regulation. So instead of a Roadmaster (26mpg in 1996), we're forced to buy a Suburban (21mpg in 2007) to haul our family and tow our boats.
And she blames Detroit for this?
