Media Sensationalism

Just read an article on MSN about a guy who killed a guy in house by ramming his car into it going 90 or so.

"Maserati driver kills homeowner in Den"
My problem is this; who gives a sh&# what kind of car he was driving. Does this mean all Maserati drivers could ram into peoples homes?
If it were a toyota camry...would it be titled..toyota driver kills man in den?

Bad rap for us Maserati drivers.

I can't afford a Maserati. I have a Riveria with 208,000 that needs struts.

Word. We have it pretty bad, but nothing like the SUV drivers. The wackos are really giving those SOB's a hard time.

No...he'd never make it to 90 MPH in the Camry.

Those who own both might as well just be labeled mass murderers right off the bat!

I beg to differ. I pushed triple digits on the Bonneville Salt Flats in my '97 Camry LE V6 a couple years ago.

You keep it chained up in the backyard with a high fence, right? That's what responsible owners like you are supposed to do with those things. Don't want to let them out where they'll terrorize the neighborhood.
