Old Fred then says, "Then mebbe we should invest in stock in some company thet makes 'stension cords. "

Better yet Fred, invest in security devices for external electrical outlets. heh...

Well, you know I'm all for anything even remotely positive regarding the development and use of electric vehicles, but I have a question. Considering the current state of supply and demand of electricity, brown outs and all that, how exactly is this all going to work?

Shouldn't we be thinking about buying another horse or two before going whole hog with the cart.....er car?
