Flowing And Sprouting

Daily Draw: Da Vinci Tarot ~ Star/Way Shower

Dimmi: Where are things flowing, what hopeful shoots are sprouting in this matter?

We own a Volkswagen TDI Jetta Sportwagen. 42-45 miles per gallon. Quiet, efficient, we loved it. Sang it's praises to anyone even remotely thinking about buying a new car. Is our face ever red.
It is one of 8,000,000 VW autos world wide with a factory installed defeat device. When tested it shows correct epa pollutant standards. Once off the check equipment, it goes back to exceeding pollutant requirements.
They've missed several fix-it deadlines, including yesterday's. Oddly enough the Mitsubishi company came up this week with an admission of another type of auto cheat.

What's sprouting? Haven't a clue, but the heads are still getting their annual bonuses. 70 million euros for 2015. Funny that. I'd like to hide the Jetta under a tarp in the deep woods.

  1. Reward for failure all too common in the corporate world! No doubt it will be someone further down the chain who pays with their job.

  5. No shame in taking someone at their word. It would be a hard world to live in if we lived in paranoia all the time. Still it would be nice for the EPA to kick some corporate butt. :D
