Hey Brandon,

I agree with you about the SUV thing. I don't understand why so many people buy them. I can see their value to some people, but the majority of people who buy them would likely get a lot more practical use out of a car or minivan.

It bothers me that so many people make such ridiculous choices when they purchase a vehicle, fueled by emotion as you mention, but I don't think it's fair to say that driving in general and everyone who drives is a power hungry idiot.

Many people choose their shoes based on style/emotion over function/practicality. It would be ridiculous to say that walking or running is about power.

I know it seems like I'm nitpicking, but I'm not. I just don't think it's productive (and it really bugs me) to generalize and create a us vs. them sort of attitude between people who drive and people who don't drive.
