    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    This weekend is the North American Auto Show in Detroit. They've been showing highlights all week on the local news. Some of the concept cars look pretty good-Cadillac and VW both had some cool-looking vehicles. Isn't that why people go? To see the concept cars?
