Smaller, electric cars reign at Detroit auto show Electric, hybrid and small cars will grab center stage at the Detroit auto show this week, as the industry adapts to a world reshaped by recession and environmental worries. Ford wants to build on success in midsize sedans and reignite small-car sales, while Hyundai aims to extend last year's triumph in budget-conscious models. GM and Chrysler will start fresh with electric vehicles but also try to boost their small-car credibility.

Here's to the classic neighborhood pizza joint, long may it live. Unfortunately, this garlicky and grand quick-and-dirty eating destination has become something of a dinosaur in these days of Pizza Hut, Domino's Pizza and other big chains. But a fine example exists in Catonsville, tucked into a corner of the Forty West shopping center on Rolling Road.

If you want to get big and fat in this country and grow to the size of the Goodyear blimp, there is no shortage of opportunities to do so. The latest comes courtesy of the folks at Domino's Pizza, who have come up with a new offer that makes some of their previous offers look like an order of celery sticks by comparison. The new offer is this: order a large pizza and Domino's will throw in a free order of 10 oven-baked brownies. Yes, brownies. Apparently, this is being offered on the theory that after someone polishes off, say, a thick, cheesy, pepperoni pizza and collapses on the couch in a stupor, the first thing he or she thinks is: Boy, it would be great to have some brownies right about now. Pizza and brownies - is that an artery-clogging doubleheader, or what?
