LA Times: Tuscaloosa is a "Sweltering, book-banning land of tainted catfish"

According to LA Times auto critic Dan Neil:
SURELY my favorite part of any product presentation of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class is hearing German engineers pronounce "Tuscaloosa," as in Alabama, where in 1997 Mercedes started building its first sport-utility vehicle: Too-ska-loo-sah.

In their mouths, Tuscaloosa sounds like such a dreamy, enchanted realm, and not the sweltering, book-banning land of tainted catfish it is.

Get a real job, dude.
