The Week in Reverse

June 24, 2005
Bernie Ecclestone thinks Indy fourth-placer is a domestic appliance. Funny, our George Foreman grill can't even hit 100 mph in the straights.

The Governors Highway Safety Association thinks that highway deaths should have gone done, with all these fancy new airbags and such. So they're talking up a return to the 55-mph speed limit. What's the best way to get voted from office, you ask? That's right, kids.

Apparently, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson isn't one of them.

The S-Class has another new look - its fourth in four tries. We'd say something about those regular visits by the milkman, but 90 percent of you wouldn't remember a milkman, so we'll just suggest that they all have different fathers and leave the rest to Divorce Court.

Chrysler's new Durango-based ute is going to be the Aspen. Local fading celebs are available for the ad campaign we hear - and this time Don Johnson promises not to wear pastels.

The Wall Street Journal says HOV lanes cause accidents. We can personally attest to this fact, but right now we're trying to merge across four lanes to our exit from the damn lane itself.

The reviews are in - and Herbie gets a decent runaround this time thanks to the effervescent Lindsay Lohan. End result: remake of Days of Thunder with Olsen twins gets greenlight for development.

Cowboy rules: sometimes a group of Pistons just can't overcome one strong Spur.
