Required reading for any SUV driver

Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point, talks about SUVs and safety. It's an amazing article.

My favorite quote: The S.U.V. boom represents, then, a shift in how we conceive of safety--from active to passive. Or, in other words, Americans don't want to be responsible for their own safety, they want somebody else to do it for them, even if it doesn't work as well.
