We will be watching closely as this progress. I for one will be curious to see if engineers and architects are named in the criminal and civil cases that result. I also have an open question: Will VW executives commit to cleaning up the professionalism and ethics of their staff? Will you commit to requiring certified architects, who commit to ethical practice, to sign-off on solutions before they are offered to the public?

Will Home Depot and Target also join in this pledge to their customers?
