Default GM executive talks down clean diesel

http://money.cnn.com/2007/07/13/auto...esel/index.htm

GM Idiot-in-Chief Bob Lutz disses clean diesel ... that means that clean diesel is likely to be the next big thing.

It's like that classic "Seinfeld" episode - if a GM top exec says to do something ... just do the opposite and you'll be fine.

That's similar to how Robert A. Heinlein recommends people vote when they'd prefer to be studying something other than politics. Find the most outspoken person you know, listen very carefully to what they say, and do your best to vote the opposite.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, that would mean supporting George W. Bush's war. (I was about to start a new topic, but I'm trying to control my posting habits lately.)
