"THIS GUY is history," proclaimed a cover story in Business Week last month, showing a caricature of the stereotypical car salesman, complete with garish sports jacket and outstretched palm. "For Used Cars, New Pitches," hailed another takeout in a recent New York Times, the revolution creeping into the auto industry. Low-pressure, consumer-friendly dealerships, bulk discounts for members of warehouse "clubs," and car brokers on the Internet are all making in-roads in auto sales."People are realizing there are new choices available," said an analyst with J.D.

For the past decade, the most popular cause of argument between the great cities of Denver and Miami has been the relative worth of two quarterbacks.Who had the better one -- the Broncos, with John Elway, or the Dolphins, with Dan Marino?Of course, this debate is as stale today as the search for Bill Clinton's passport records. For two reasons: First, Marino has long since proved himself superior; and, second, the great cities of Denver and Miami have redirected their priorities to argue baseball, a game of ever-evolving nuance, not football and its oppressive, Neanderthal pell-mell.

However, as of last night Angelos had yet to contact Miller, leaving club employees to field a flood of phone calls and delaying what is believed to be the inevitable search for Miller's successor.

Don't play the race cardLawyers and politicians cash in playing the race card, so why not sportswriters? That must have been the thinking of Ken Rosenthal when he wrote his column for Dec. 31 ("Lack of hiring judgment right there in black, white").NFL owners are millionaires with huge egos. I believe they all try to put winning organizations together. Why else are they in the game? They certainly don't need the money. Some owners are good at this, others are woefully inept.Regardless, it's their team and their mega-million-dollar investment.
