    ‘«ˇBest of the Best‘«÷ for BMW Motorrad and Husqvarna

    I and a bunch of others saw the interesting article on the BMW MOA website, titled as above. The accompanying photo shows off the new BMW Scooters, and mentions that they have won a design award which is a "feather in the cap" for BMW. I immediately flashed back to passages in the novel Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, where a "feather in the cap" is maybe not such a good thing. I'd thought that phrase was driven from English usage by that novel. I guess not...

    A feather in one's cap is a good thing, unless one is as crazy as Colonel Cathcart.

    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance
