I’m having a snarky Dennis Miller moment. The Democratic Convention kicks off today. The China Olympics concluded last night. A new NFL season is almost upon us. Baseball playoff fever is hotting up.
And into my e-mail box today came a sneak peak, I thought, of the 2010 Buick LaCrosse. Okay, I’m not that juiced up, but I’ll have a look. I’m game. But then I open the e-mail from GM, and all I get is a shot of the grille of the refreshed 2010 Buck LaCrosse (pictured above).
Readers: Help me think of a top ten list of things of greater consequence than the refreshed grille of next year’s Buick LaCrosse, which will be shown, I’m told, at this fall’s LA Auto Show
I’ll start off the first three:
10. A new polymer that will make plastic garbage bags break down in landfills 2% faster.
9. New printer cartridges from HP that will be 3% more expensive than the rip-off prices the company charges already.
8. Whirlpool announces a breakthrough that will result in the lint trap in its dryer needing to be cleaned after every five loads instead of every four loads.
