Who would have thought you could slip Garrison Keillor into an article about Chinese automobile fuel economy standards:

But under the Chinese rules, the fuel-inefficient models—especially new ones introduced after the standards take effect—would be subject to fines no matter how well their siblings do, Mr. Zhang said, and the maker would not be allowed to expand production of the gas-guzzling models. In Garrison Keillor's phrase, China plans to require that every vehicle be above average.

Talk about a non-sequitur.
