PUT YOUR HANDS UP FOR DETROIT: I saw a Ford Edge the other day, and I have to say that it was very attractive. Don’t know what it’s like under the skin, but it was certainly pretty. Which I guess is why Ford is pushing it so hard.

UPDATE: Reader Joe Girardot emails: “Was your title for the post about the Ford Edge a Freudian slip? Shouldn’t it be: ‘Put your hands together for Detroit’? Or are you thinking about stickups?”

Actually, it’s a song by Fedde LeGrande, one of the big dance music hits of last summer. Though the title would have worked for last month’s effort by Big Three auto executives to get federal protection against imports . . . .

ANOTHER UPDATE: Here’s a review of the Ford Edge.
