The ad page entering Salon today is a contest sponsored by Lexis is which entrants are told to write “Realistically, what is your ultimate vision for this country as it relates to sustainable mobility?” I can’t get over how hilarious it is for Lexus to add in the word “realistically”. It’s like when a question on a test already contains the answer. The answer is, as best as I can tell, the new Lexus HS250h! The last ‘h’ stands for hybrid! The answer is most certainly not a massive expansion of public transportation that ends with no one buying overpriced luxury piles of steel. Sometimes it’s hard to see how corporate interests dictate the terms of our political debates. Other times, not so much.
