Thiiiiiis is howwwwww liiiiiiiife shoullllld beeeeeee...[under the thumb of Big Brother]. Progressive, the nation's third-largest auto insurer, is running a test program where they're handing customers a black box and fifty bucks to see what the devices find out about driving habits. Personally, we're completely, totally and wholly opposed to any such invasion of our privacy. Insurance companies already have too much power in this world and we'll drive a goddamn Hupmobile daily before we'll let a bunch of suits track our driving habits electronically.
