The Week in Reverse

June 10, 2005
Being in the queen's service at Rolls-Royce isn't all it's cracked up to be -- apparently, there's always a royal pain to deal with.

On top of that, the Brits may actually beat California and Oregon in making drivers pay per mile. But hey, we'll put our Governator up against Tony Blair any day!

Toyota's afraid that the crumbling at GM and Ford will turn into a backlash against its cars. TCC's take: raising prices to cool off sales just puts more into Toyota's scary-huge coffers.

The AFA and Rev. Donald Wildmon are backing down from their boycott of Ford after about 100,000 followers signed their online petition. Mid-term result: style-conscios gays continue to flock to Jaguar, while sporty lesbians continue to hear the siren call of the XC90. Earth continues to orbit on slightly wobbly axis.

Pierre Gagnon is a man without a country once more, after departing Bricklin's Visionary Vehicles. Next stop: a company that removes irritants and pathogens. Mitsubishi employees are free to email TCC without irony.

TCC somehow manages to put Rick Wagoner in "pubic" avoidance mode in subscriber-only copy of Daily Edition. Action point: subscribe to TCC's newsletters and never miss breaking typos!
