You know how you've always dreamed of driving a tour bus? You would welcome people on board, point out the highlights of your town and offer historical tidbits that are just salacious enough to make the old guys laugh and the old ladies purse their lips. But that's a pipe dream. You've got mouths to feed! That is, unless the Easy Speak microphone in the headliner of the 2014 Toyota Highlander were made standard.
