I drive a SMART car, which, because it is basically just half a car, is the least expensive car you can own. However, because SMART is built by Mercedes-Benz and the cars were sold at Mercedes dealerships, I'm on a lot of mailing lists comprised primarily of owners of Mercedes-Benz luxury cars. This leads to some inappropriate profiling. Today, for example, I received an email from a BMW dealer in Albany announcing, "There's a new BMW waiting for you!"
"Micropolitan Diary" is Gossips' homage to and blatant imitation of "Metropolitan Diary" in the New York Times. The term micropolitan was coined (by Gossips) because Hudson is a metropolis in microcosm.
