Hat tip to Universal Hub for finding this interesting passage from Saturday’s Boston Globe auto section review of the 2019 Subaru Forrester:

Suppose you’ve been kicked out of your apartment because you can’t pay the rent.

It’s not unlikely given the federal minimum wage is a mere $7.25 an hour. That’s $15,080 annually, or 91 percent less than a congressman’s $174,000 salary. Although at $84 an hour, members of Congress earn far less than most bloodless, uncaring, multi-millionaire, robber baron CEOs.

Still, should this happen, you’d want to own the redesigned, fifth-generation 2019 Subaru Forester crossover; its roof is engineered to hold 700 pounds when parked. Knowing that you can pitch a tent on top of your car means you’ll never be homeless.

Pretty sure if I could afford a $25,000 car I wouldn’t be homeless, but what do I know?

We’re assuming this is advertorial content that runs in a lot of auto sections. But running this as-is is inexcusable and further proof that the Globe has decimated its editing staff to the point that there is next to no quality control left at the once great paper.
