OOD DAY FOR: Civic responsibility, after the National Insurance Crime Bureau reported that, for the second year running, the most-stolen car in the U.S. last year was the 1995 Honda Civic. Overall car theft was down 8.9 percent. But it could be lower still. “It’s amazing to see how many folks get their cars stolen from leaving their keys in them,” said NICB spokesman Frank Scafidi.

BAD DAY FOR: Solidarity, after the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists approved a three-year TV contract with Hollywood producers, dealing a blow to the Screen Actors Guild. SAG is trying to negotiate a tougher deal than that agreed to by AFTRA, and had tried to convince AFTRA members to vote down the pact. The AFTRA agreement makes it less likely that SAG will call a strike. (Los Angeles Times)
