It's been a damn slow news week, so the folks at Edmunds' Inside Line finally got around to posting Ken Gross' rah-rah portrait of the SEMA Show, despite the fact that it was teeming with more idiots than ever before; having seemingly turned the corner from a great industry gathering where a lot of business gets done into a bloated corpse of fetid, festering lameness. It's a surprisingly fine line, and we hope the SEMA people stop believing the brown-nosing hype that writers like Gross are spewing and bring it back to its former glory.
