Growing up in New York City, Charlotte Ronson never learned to drive. So she started taking lessons last year at the age of 31, and now she's competent enough to ferry a Wall Street Journal around the East Village while discussing how her life has changed since she got behind the wheel. The article isn't exactly packed with breaking news, but it is pretty cute how happy Charlotte is about finally being able to pick the music in the car, which is something you never get to do when you're being chauffeured around by Samantha Ronson.
