Yes, yes, we know, we know, BMW is dominating the headlines lately. But we couldn't pass up this story hot off the Baghdad newswire: Iraqi police have taken to stopping many BMW drivers, especially those with dark-colored cars, after intelligence reports which claim that insurgents are using them to perpetrate drive-bys, kidnappings and other acts of badness. The problem, according to news agency driver Mohammed Sulaibi, is that "Everyone in Iraq has a BMW." Wow, everyone? The beloved Bimmers are now much cheaper and far more available since the removal of Saddam Hussein. Ok, no more Bavarian Motor Works entries until tomorrow, I promise.
Credit where it's due: big ups to Michael Huang for the tip and the great headline suggestion.
