And Tony Romo's retirement and hirement as a sportscaster is owning the sports sites! We are so far away from football season right now I can barely see it. Time for more falling asleep cat.

Entry price points on Cadillac are good but to get marginal upgrades they force consumers into a much higher bracket. The XT5 for example you can get the base for 40K but if you want a couple of extras it goes to right at 70K. There is no middle ground.

I will say the rearview driving camera and heads up display are very nice features but I could have done without it if I did not have a wife.

Re: Tom Benson buys Cadillac of New Orleans in Metairie

How much "Dead Money" did this result in and how does the impact the "Cap"? What was the dealerships 40 time as well as vertical leap?

Did he "Kick the Tires" and see "What's Left In The Tank"? Did he get it on "The Cheap" for the "Hometown Discount"?

Most importantly why didn't he purchase a dealership in Baton Rouge? Even more proof............!

It's business as usual. I think he just sold his rights to his TV station. He's a car salesman by nature and that is where he got his start.

I had a Caddy but can't afford another one.

I've never gone that direction because they just can't seem to figure the pickup thing. The Escalade just didn't have a big enough bed.
