The Corner

The one and only.

Nano, Nano


In a tremendous achievement for personal liberty and mobility, the Indian micro-car, the Tata Nano, has sold 200,000 units in just eight weeks. As these cars will be replacing the “informal car,” hand-built from whatever mechanical parts a poor Indian can lay his hands on, I expect Ralph Nader will be celebrating the massive increase in safety involved. As for our friends in the environmental movement, what will they think? “On your bike,” I should imagine.

UPDATE: We do know what the Greens think: Shazbot!
