You could be right, my memory is him going after the Pinto. The Corvair
and the Beetle were death traps as well, but I only recall news stories
about him and the Pinto. Some people still think the Corvair was a
"Sturdy thing" It wasn't, and neither were the VW or the Isetta or a
slew of other small cars. People burning up in fiery crashes were
about the same in the Pinto as any other car, but the world was
convinced Pinto's had a corner on the market, and they didn't.
The real danger was simply physics. Low weight, small vehicle hitting a
higher weight, large vehicle. The small guy loses most every time.

Great link there Larry, too much for now but I saved it to peruse later.
As far as cost risk analysis that get a hair up everyones nose, I look
at it like the Saw Stop. I don't want anyone mandating that I get rid
of my saw and buy a Saw Stop, or buy Saw Stop technology because it is
risky not to use it. My saw has been used for 50+ years w/o any major
damage, and no saw stop, no guard even. I can afford a Saw Stop, and I
could have a roll cage installed in my truck, make everyone that enters
my truck wear a NASCAR approved crash helmet, and a fire suit, but, I
choose not too.
Thank you, Jack, for the instructions on the proper etiquette for Usenet.

The denier was a French coin created by Charlemagne in the Early
Middle Ages. It was introduced together with an accounting system in
which twelve deniers equaled one sou and twenty sous equalled one
livre. This system and the denier itself served as the model for many
of Europe's currencies, including the British pound, Italian lira,
Spanish dinero and the Portuguese dinheiro.
But so far, nobody has minted a coin in my favour.
