  •  my letter to Volkswagen... (none)
    I will be looking for a new car to replace my well-loved Subaru Outback next year, and right now, the diesel Passat Wagon is high on the list.  However...

    It has come to my attention that your company is one of the sponsors of "The O'Reilly Factor" on FOX News. As you are no doubt aware, on his radio show, Bill O'Reilly recently said, and I quote: "And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead."

    San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. The Coit Tower was dedicated in part to firemen and police.  And O'Reilly's call for terrorists to attack an American city just because he doesn't like them is utterly dispicable.

    If Volkswagen is still sponsoring O'Reilly's disgusting behavior when I'm ready to buy a new car in a few months, I will consider it a very black mark against your company.  There are a lot of excellent wagons on the market today, and I will not buy one whose maker, however indirectly, endorses terrorist attacks.
