Everyone seems to be commenting on this MSNBC/Newsweek article, so I'll throw $0.02 in now, and maybe come back for another comment or two on it. Here is the sentence that jumped out at me at the end of the article:

Toyota, can you hear this? Jump ahead of the bandwagon again, and beat the US government to the punch as well, and consider this practice.
