City hogs

  Dear HCN:

Your comment about accident rates among four-wheel drives (Heard around the West, HCN, 12/25/95) was pretty amusing - especially so for us (liberal) East Coasters who rarely see any snow in the city of Baltimore. So many yuppies have succumbed to the need to buy these big gas hogs after being influenced by advertising. It makes a lot of sense to own one of those beasts when you are sitting in beltway traffic hurrying to your power job so that you can make those monthly payments while dreaming that you are riding across the wilderness in comfort and style.

To paraphrase the Neville Brothers: When is everyone gonna wake up?
