Or why didn't I ever think that such a thing needed to be researched. To whit, in today's e-mailed university newsletter came this call:

Build a better car -- or at least one which is quieter and less polluting -- and risk running over people who don't know it's there. Yikes!
I love Systems and how everything interrelates with everything else. You can never just change one thing. Something to think about.
