  1. "L.T.'s coming up, I guess he wants to see the situation for himself."
    "Is 1st Lt. Gonzales a worry-wart or something?" Winkler wanted to know.
    "Nah, he's just careful. He's a good guy, doesn't expect us to do things he wouldn't do himself. I worry about him at times. He seems way too smart to be a lieutenant." Which elicited a grin from Winkler.

  2. I wasn't trying to convert anyone,  or sing praises to electric cars, nor denigrate internal combustion engines.  Just pointing out an oddity I noticed on one drive.   


    Yesterday I started with 100% charge and an estimated 177 mile range.  When I got home from work,  with a 26 mile round trip,  I  was down to 80% and an estimated remaining range of 139 miles.  


    I agree that they aren't for everyone,  especially the shorter range ones like this.

    Edison is known for having his name on a lot of patents taken out for things his employees invented.


    That's kind of how it works.  You work for a person or company who pays you to come up with ideas.  The person or company takes out the patent and gets the credit.

    I don't have a problem with EVs in general. If it serves your purpose, then that's great. The problem I have is with the environmentalist  wackos that think that if we all drive EVs, the skies will clear, the oceans will be pure, landfills will no longer be needed, people will stop warring over every little thing, and All Will be Right With the World.


    On the test drive the salesman asked me if I  was thinking about going electric for economic or "moral" reasons.   I managed not to laugh as I  said, "Purely money. "

  5. For us it was affordability.   Do we put $5000 or more into repairs on a 20 year old pickup that costs about $40 to $50 per week to run,  or do we put a few grand down on something new, with $200 per month payments that costs maybe $12 per week to run and that is more comfortable for my wife?
