I guess the UAW doesn’t control NASA

A coda on the Toyota scare:

A lengthy investigation by NASA into last year’s Toyota Motor Corp. recalls found that engine electronics played no role in incidents of sudden, unintended acceleration of its cars, U.S. officials said Tuesday.

The report, released by the Transportation Department to settle persistent questions over the Toyota recalls, concluded that the auto maker had identified the only two causes of the incidents: defective gas pedals and interfering floor mats.

I’m waiting now for the apologies from all those officials who jumped ahead with their public condemnations, and chased an honest company down the rabbit hole of congressional and media outrage, costing them (and ultimately all of us) billions of dollars.
