    notion of ownership and usage.

    I'm starting to get the impression that the really irritating/impressive thing about cars is they're so darn modular and versatile and as you and Odysseus say, one-size-fits-all-ish. Once we start talking about moving away from cars, all sorts of region and circumstance related transportation issues start to show their heads.

    It solves a lot of logistical transport issues for everybody just to have their own damn internal combustion engine and people can use it how they need it.

    But good god is it inefficient. I'd love to see more rail and bus transportation options, especially since I only use our car for local transport these days. But I don't think mass transit can look backwards for answers...I think it needs to creatively address modern lifestyles -- from my standpoint and current position in the life cycle: families.

    Now...the Mazda 6 is a NICE little UAW made car and my bro fits all 4 of his kids in there. Gotta say, that's an impressively thought out small sized car. And the turn radius...to die for.

    What is this? Are you some kind of hypnotist? Waving your powers around...
