I heard Toyota was protesting GM's Test Track on the grounds that the braking segment of the ride was "unrealistic".

They are all evil. The supposedly "good" ones are just trying to fool people so they can get public approval to erect a circus tent near ground zero.

I just find the whole thing funny. I think he is either a stuck up jerk or a marketing genius looking for a cheap way to get his companies name plastered around the country and beyond.
