No, Ralph isn't one of the owners. But as you drive by the auto-repair shop just south of Gravois, the "Nader and Sons" sign painted on the former filling station brings to mind the fact that consumer savant and corporate watchdog Ralph Nader got his initial fame by publishing Unsafe at Any Speed and testifying before Congress back in the '60s about Detroit's failure to make safe cars. Nader's work led to seat belts and all manner of safety gear. He then moved on to other areas of consumer protection and currently is the presidential candidate for the Green Party. The word is that Nader and Sons mechanics do quality work; just don't expect to see a Corvair Monza on the lot.
