Listening to the House hearing on Toyota. At last a firm indication that People Who Count recognize the difference
between "unintended steady speed" and "unintended acceleration."
Oddly, the clarity didn't come from Joe Barton of Texas, who was an engineer before he entered politics. It came first from Betty Sutton of Ohio, who is a lot easier on the eyes than most politicians. I hadn't heard of Sutton before, but after checking out her web page
I'm going to watch her more closely. Seems to be a real Hot Honey, I mean a real populist. Yes, populist, that's what I mean.

Later: Now Barton is showing that he understands the problem logically, systematically and mathematically. I'm reassured to find some real intelligence in DC. (Unfortunately he pronounces the name Toyodo for some reason, which will give the Commies a nice handle to parody him ... but then the committee chairman pronounces it Tah-Yota and Dingell pronounces it To-hota. This is just weird.)
