I have seen the future, and she is pink

This photo, which looks like the joke email that is supposed to show the new Obamamobiles, in fact shows a Fiat 500 under construction in Tchy, Poland. And if Tchy sounds like a joke, too, know that the 'Little Mouse' (as it was called when I was hitchhiking through Italy postwar) will soon be coming to a Chrysler dealership near you. What's more, as the NYT tells us, 'Since Fiat effectively took over Chrysler this year, engineers from Detroit have been making monthly pilgrimages [to Tchy] to see something they can only envy: an auto plant that is hiring workers and earning a profit.' Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
