Reason #311 to pursue that Pulitzer Prize with merciless determination: Your employer will eventually let you write poems about German luxury cars -- in the newspaper! The L.A. Times's Bard of Cars Dan Neil on Mercedes's new SLK350:
Attend me well, lords and ladies,
And my song of brave Mercedes,
A company that's struggled a bit, of late,
With reliability most unfortunate.
Though recent reports from J.D. Power
Have been as depressing as Schopenhauer,
One thing our fathers found,
You can't keep a German in a lab coat down.
