Audist Alert:
Saw a photo accompanying a hard-copy report in the 
Chicago Sun Times newspaper on Tuesday (4-10, Wm. O'Rourke column, photo
not on their website), using an Associated Press photo showing Secy.
Paul O' Neil. Many may know he's the former president of Alcoa, and is
shown standing
with his car in front of the Alcoa headquarters.  It's definitely an
Audi and looks like an A8.  Appropriate, considering the significant
aluminum content.

Anyway, I thought it was interesting because most of our
politicians couldn't identify the purpose of a steering wheel if it
was handed to them. Rarely does a "civilian" auto accompany them in
photos.  Too many chauffeurs (aloofness), not enough drivers (reality),
but one of our problems in Washington.

Happy Motoring,

Dale McCormack
