Sherry Mann wonders on Facebook why, if America is so free, we can't buy a sensible car. Volkswagen is getting ready to introduce a non-hybrid concept car (granted, it's a one-seater) that gets 258 mpg, and can go 75 mph.
Nanny says we can't have it -- consumer safety, you know -- so we can just go into our corner and pout.
Update Mar. 12: A commenter has noted that one way around Nanny is to have a car designer license the design for manufacture and sale in-state. His inspiration came from a kit automobile, the King Midget, manufactured in Athens from 1946-1970.
