That sound you hear? It's the entire New York Times editorial board engaged in an enviro-smugasm. And yes, it's over a story we ran earlier today or last month, depending on how you look at it. Either way — what we always knew would happen finally did happen — US automakers General Motors, Ford and the Chrysler Group achieved only 48.1% of all vehicles sold in the United States in the month of July. Yes, even though both Honda and Toyota both took some sales hits this month — it still wasn't as bad as the drop suffered by the automakers known as the "Big Three." Not like this really matters anyway — but whatever, it'll make for some great headlines like the one above. [via the New York Times]
