Fight the 'greens' on their own turf
I read Keith Crain's column and your story on the Ford Excursion (March 8), and you're neither hot nor cold.
You're waffling, and that's not good. Stand for something, for gosh sakes. Have the guts to take a position and defend it. Let me help you.
The Ford Excursion is not a bad/polluting/killing 'emblem of excess.' It will be a very safe vehicle for those who choose to own it.
Why don't you learn from the 'greens' and tree-huggers and fight them on their own turf? Frame the discussion the way they would.
Here's how it goes:
Environmentalists want to save the earth and trees.
Little cars save the earth and trees.
Everyone should drive a little car. To do otherwise is morally wrong.
Big cars hurt the earth. Big cars are morally wrong.
People die in little cars. Even if it's two little cars going 'bump,' you're more likely to die in one of them than you are in a big car.
Children ride in cars.
Environmentalists would rather let children die than let you ride in a big car.
Kill a child and save a tree.
C'mon guys. Get some nerve. Stop waffling and stand up for something.

Will feds look at Ted Turner?
If the tabloid press picks up your March 29 piece on Ted Turner in Automotive Marketer, the headline will be: Millionaire confesses to federal crime.
It is still illegal to reuse uncanceled stamps, isn't it?
