    The Matier & Ross “scoop” is unimpressive in several ways, but I think what takes the cake is its status-quo-defending loss aversion being trumpeted as “common sense” government skepticism. It’s truly amazing what thought patterns the automotive industry and its boosters were able to set in motion a hundred years ago!
