Worse than I thought

Last night, I wrote:
I get the feeling that America is like the frog in the saucepan--whether it's driving habits, global warming, the housing bubble or Iraq, by the time we realize what's happening it will be too late.
Then I read this:
Sales of the F-Series pickup truck line alone accounted for 35% of those sales. The 126,905 F-Series trucks consumers bought in July represent the highest monthly sales for any vehicle in modern day US automotive history, according to Ford, and perhaps the highest monthly sales for any vehicle since Ford's Model T in the 1920s.
Those are big honkin' trucks! Americans are jumping out of the warm saucepan, and into the big spaghetti pot that's already boiling.
