the Hummer , daring or cowardly?

Another letter in the NYTimes today puts the lie to the boasts of Hummer owners and GM's marketing campaign. Note that the vehicle in question is the "small" Hummer

To the Editor:
I'm not surprised that the H2 is such a hot seller (Business Day, Nov. 2). America is full of self-centered people, desperately craving attention from strangers.
Hummer's general manager says, "The people that buy this product, they're daring." What's so daring about driving a military vehicle to do errands? Riding a bicycle is daring.
Seattle, Nov. 2, 2002
The question should also be directed toward the owners of less ueber SUVs.
