And, one more thing:
Fascinating article on SUVs in this week's New Yorker. The article isn't online, but there is a Q & A with the author, Malcolm Gladwell. The article's premise: SUVs, built with lower safety standards than cars or minivans, are driven by people who are less aware of the road around them, and become even more of a menace. As a driver of a small, nimble car, who feels much safer in it than in anything big (except when around SUVs, which is much too often these days), I agree thoroughly.

Also in the New Yorker: Running on Instinct, good profile of Howard Dean.
