 WHY: Nearly 40 years after the first patent was issued for
 a "Safety Cushion Assembly For Automotive Vehicles,"
 airbags are one of the most popular automotive features
 with consumers, and Congress has included in the just-
 passed highway bill a requirement that two airbags
 be installed in all passenger vehicles. The original
 holder of that patent and 10 others will be honored
 by consumer leader Ralph Nader and people who have
 escaped death or serious injury thanks to an airbag.
