P. J. O'Rourke, Driving Like Crazy: Thirty Years of Vehicular Hellbending, Celebrating America the Way It's Supposed To Be--With an Oil Well in Every Backyard, a Cadillac Escalade in Every Carport, and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank Mowing Our Lawn (New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, 2009) 110.
