      And poet, Roger McGough

      "... This ugly secret emerges early in our interview, when I query a line in
      his new poem, The Way Things Are
      [http://www.ucl.ac.uk/~uctlmtq/mcgough3.htm#way%5d, which reads, 'the duller
      the imagination, the faster the car.' I ask whether it follows that he has a
      very slow car, and he admits that he doesn't drive. "You're hard pushed to
      find a male poet who does, actually." He laughs."

      And then there's the Gabriel Byrne character, a surveillance specialist, in
      Wim Wenders' wonderful movie "The End of Violence", set in LA, who doesn't
      drive because he says: "I avoid technology whenever I can".
