Car crush

Too bad it’s not a Sebring: Chrysler has ordered the automotive program at South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia to destroy a 1992 Dodge Viper that was donated to the school.

The automaker cited liability issues, though some might argue that most Chrysler products should be sent to the crusher.

No wrong answers: The SAT exam taken by millions of American students is undergoing an overhaul intended to open doors to higher education for people who are now shut out.

Reflecting the state of higher education in America, the entrance exam will also include a student loan application.

And they’re not being paid in batteries: RadioShack may be shutting 1,100 stores due to lousy sales, but that didn’t stop it from paying hefty bonuses to top executives, including 500 grand for Chief Executive Officer Joe Magnacca.

Magnacca will snag as much as $600,000 next year if he meets performance targets, which presumably include setting fire to the company after he’s finished running it into the ground.
