I have had a Smart for years and personally I think that this debate is not particularly sophisticated, but then again, perhaps in the US you have a simpler system of regulation of vehicles. In the UK there are distinct advantages in driving a Smart. We have an annual road tax based on CO2 emissions. When the latest changes take effect, I will pay £30 pa to tax my Smart against £270 for family saloon type vehicles and £455 or there about for SUVs. (all approximate...
I wish I was finished. I have been ill for a few weeks and so I am now behind, with two papers to submit in the next few weeks and then two exams.

Visconti, Vegetable resin, so every one is unique. Write beautifully and good value. I prefer Mrs Nonk's to my much more expensive Conway Stewart.
I have a Conway Stewart, which is nice to look at but doesn't write that brilliantly. The Visconti I bought Mrs Nonk (at about 1/4 of the price) is nicer and much more fun to write with. (The red one)
Are they clearing space for another attempt at the Volkshalle?
I like to think 5' 11", but its just under. I have the physique of a God. Buddha.
