Reality Bites

Following complaints from safety groups and parent organizations alike, GM has pulled a commercial which spotlighted a 9/10 yr old boy driving a Corvette recklessly through city streets. The groups had complained that the commercial may give kids ideas and encourage them to 'borrow' their parents' cars and take them out for a spin.

Now I don't know about all of you, but my parents have never owned any car remotely as appealling as a Corvette. When I was 10, it would have taken something much more than that commercial to inspire me to take the 89 brown Dodge Caravan out on the town.
