When I heard him speak, I believe he used the rubber chicken to illustrate corporate corruption, somehow. His talk was post-election 2000, & he still got a standing ovation when he 1st walked on stage & another one after he finished. You could feel the love & respect for him that everyone had. I wish he was immortal.
He spoke about why he started investigating car safety... he lost a few very dear friends of his in car accidents that wouldn't have happened in today's cars, he said. What a sweetheart - he took something horrible & sad, & his anger at it, & made some profound positive changes come from it all for everyone. & his anger is channeled against the perpetrator(s) every time.
Anyway, my half-joking "lust" for him is based partly on how much he looks like my boyfriend, how much his character reminds me of my closest male friend in undergrad, & because he doesn't have any direct descendants to carry on the wonderful subtleties of his personality...
