Unlike other members of my family, and most people I know, I still watch the commercials on television. While my husband flips through dozens of channels before the top of the Orioles' next inning and my teenagers instant message their friends, download a song onto their iPods and finish a homework assignment in between crises on The OC, I watch to see how corporate America hawks its wares. As a high school teacher of an American pop culture class, I have more than just a passing curiosity, particularly in what is being sold to teens and twentysomethings, one of the most active consumer groups in the marketplace.

Flipping through television channels at her Belcamp home on a recent evening, Hattye Knight wasn't sure what caught her attention first: the sickening crunch of metal and shattering glass as an SUV slammed into a smaller sedan, or the jarring visual of the car's occupants smashing into inflated air bags. Either way, Knight said, she was transfixed, catching her breath as the sedan spun around and exhaling only when the two couples inside, who had been bantering about a movie they had just seen, emerged shaken but OK - and the words "Safe happens" flashed over the scene.

Faisal Siddiqui was on the fence about the used Volkswagen Jetta he'd just test-driven, so he balked when the salesman urged him to fill out some financing forms - particularly because he didn't want to give out his Social Security number. In an era of identity theft, the Columbia resident might be commended for keeping that information to himself. But this is also a time of terror and fear. Siddiqui's reticence brought the FBI to his door. Siddiqui, 29, is brown-skinned and Muslim. He's also an American, an Air Force captain and a lawyer who is a judge advocate for the 11th Wing at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington.
