LIMOS GOOD, NOT BAD: Yet another politician has been heavily criticized for taking limo rides. Former senator Tom Daschle was supposed to be the new secretary of health, and played a major role in Obama's campaign. He's been accused of failing to pay more than $100,000 in taxes for a donated limousine. The pressure was so intensive that he stepped back and turned down the offer. How many times have you read news stories like this one, where limo rides are considered an obvious source of payoffs and corruption. (Newspaper editors are winking at readers when the word "limousine" is mentioned prominently.) This makes me wonder: is there anything the National Limousine Association can do to refute such criticism? Could there be a new program offering reduced fare rides to well known political leaders in our nation's capital? A "clean up" program demonstrating how limousine rides with NLA members are safe, legal, legitimate, and luxurious? Just a thought...  -- J.L.
