This reminds me of Domino's Pizza. Exactly when its boss made news for his opposition to abortion, "the word" went out that their pizza was no good. Now anything by Card gets the same treatment. Political correctness shows its muscle again. In the recent comparable case of Chick Fil A the tactic backfired though you still see that name used as a curse/insult.

55 was set by President Nixon in 1974 on advice of Lee Iaccoca. Nixon's original idea was a 50 mph federal speed limit, or more accurately federal extortion of the states to individually impose that limit. Supposedly that would partly solve the Arab oil embargo of the time. It was much later that "safety" became a nanny-state excuse for what had become the most defied law in the USA since alcohol prohibition.
