Quote of the day

Here's another one from Sojourners today that I think is really, really important to pass on to you:

We’re looking at a problem that could be as bad as drunk driving, and the government has covered it up.

-- Clarence Ditlow, director of the Center for Auto Safety, on a decision by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration not to release extensive research on the dangers of drivers using cell phones.

Apparently this was published in the New York Times.

I really don't understand what the advantage would be of covering this up. It's not as if people are going to quit buying cell phone plans just because they're not allowed to drive while using them.
