Non-political news

In among the barrage of Obama/Clinton coverage today, you might have missed a quiet piece of interesting news: GM is going small.

They're closing four pickup truck and SUV factories; throwing brand weight into their smaller and more fuel-efficient cars like the Cobalt; talking seriously about their battery-operated Volt; and -- shock -- may drop entirely the line that has become America's icon of small-penis compensation.

Yes, that's right, they may mothball the Hummer.

This is one of those baby steps that's likely to get lost amid the shouting and screaming and running, but we'll be feeling its effects for decades to come. And it's a hopeful sign.
