Illusions of safety

Malcolm Gladwell hasn’t put up a new article on his site for several months. So I had a real sense of pleasure when I saw that there was a new one. The title “Big and Bad:How the S.U.V. ran over automotive safety”, looked reasonably promising. As I read on I saw that it subject had more and more relevance to some wider stuff I have been thinking about. (This is not that unexpected Gladwell’s pieces often have a much wider resonance than just the subject they are focussed on.) Read it yourself and see if you agree. I will be returning to this theme very soon.
