Claim shame

New Jersey residents were somewhat taken aback last month when they called a telephone service that had been set up by the New Jersey Attorney General's Office.

Still, he should be glad that the cars use only the shortened version of the company name.

Imagine what a mess they'd have made of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG.
