Swati Pandey Needs a Louder Horn

We would have thought Swati Pandey at the LA Times was too young to have turned into the usual Times fogey, but we were wrong. Pandey’s as cut off from the real world as all the rest of them. Maybe Nick Goldberg has staffers hermetically sealed.

In a meant-to-be-cute signed op-ed, Pandey pleads for a louder horn for her Corolla (she calls it “rare”–it’s only the most popular car in history). Evidently, the car’s factory-issue horn is too quiet.

You’d think Dan Neil could offer advice. Or just replace it. Isn’t she supposed to be a cracker-jack researcher?

Rebellion on Two Wheels wants a horn, too.
