Re “If no risk, why sue Gallo?” (Letters, March 8): Tagging onto the previous letter to the editor, I have a similar nonsensical situation that maybe someone can explain. A neighbor bought a 1989 Mazda pickup. It runs like a top. He went to have it smog-tested and it passed with flying colors on the pretest. But the technician wouldn’t or couldn’t pass it as it had a third catalytic converter. This third was probably added because one or both of the originals were bad. It passed, runs great but no dice.
Leads me to wonder, are lobbyists from the new car companies or catalytic converter manufacturers cozying up to our wonderful politicians in sacramento? (Lower case “s” intentional).
The smog technician seemed to have a fear of Sacramento on a par with the KGB. Oh, and I wouldn’t limit those who would consider moving out of state to Gallo glass. It’s gotten to the point that California’s weather is becoming the only good thing left.
