    The more I think about this whole Toyota thing http://www.nhtsa.gov/PR/DOT-16-11, the more pissed off I get - and I don't even own a Toyota. After a year of trashing the company's cars, the government is just saying, "oops, my bad" and shrugging their shoulders http://thehill.com/homenews/house/143153-outrage-over-toyota-turns-into-shrugs-a-year-later-. This could have happened to any car company. I know they're big corporations, but WTF?

    I know I can't be the only person who feels this way http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/your-world-cavuto/transcript/does-washington-owe-toyota-apology, amirite?

    What good would an apology do? The damage is already done to Toyota's reputation. In a way, they deserved it, though, since they refused to investigate the cause of the acceleration until they were forced to.

    On the upside for American businesses, according to another article on the same site, most Americans now view Ford and GM more favorably than they do Toyota.
