At some point during all this auto-industry bailout talk, I remembered my favorite all-time silent comedy short---it doesn't star Chaplin, Keaton, Arbuckle or even Roach, but the venerable but nearly-forgotten Snub Pollard as a wacky inventor in 1923 ready to save everyone driving Detroit's newfangled machines from the greedy oil men. His own "car" is extremely fuel efficient: it doesn't use any fuel. Nor does it create any emissions. I sincerely hope that some of the CEOs of the Big Three watch this video over the next few weeks to get some ideas.
