I just saw a license plate border that read: "saving the planet one hybrid at a time." It was attached to a hybrid Ford Escape AKA an SUV! Perhaps the reputation of SUV owners (at least hybrid SUV owners) has come full circle. From a 2003 article of mine: But I wonder how drivers of super-efficient hybrids feel about Escape owners who brag about their eco-friendliness. And as I pointed out here, many owners of regular non-hybrid cars have plenty to boast about too. BTW, the most self-righteous message on the back of a hybrid is still: "How many lives per gallon do you get?" Watch the South Part "Smug Alert!" episode here.
