Reminds me of  an editorial cartoon a few years back- the world had been
reduced to one giant company- "Food, Sex and Money Inc." With all the
Chysler-Benz, Ford-Volvo, VW-Rolls etc. megers, the auto companies are
doing their best to fufill their end of the prophecy. The result of this
will be the final reduction of the automoblie to a utilarian appliance- it
works great, and has all the soul of a microwave oven.
