...and I'd be willing to vote for a measure that taxed SUVs heavily only for urban/suburban buyers. Can't be too hard to determine. Still, high cost of housing in the metro areas hurts me (and to a tune far greater than any surcharge on a car), and I'm not bitching about having to pay for my choices.

Still, this isn't here or there, because any such law is just not going to happen. We'll have to hit crisis mode on either the oil or climate front for any sort of push on mileage/emissions.

"None of this troubles the loop. Trump watches and emotes; he excretes and consumes. That a great and greatly conflicted experiment in self-government has come to this—a whole nation trying to talk a shitfaced trust-fund lout into a cab so that he won’t mow down everyone on the sidewalk, and then talking about what a fantastic job he did barfing in the ashtray—is one thing. It’s many things. But none of those things are complicated."
