Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Not only are electric cars mere displacement vehicles (they run on electricity generated by burning coal instead of running on gasoline so they still pollute, they simply displace the pollution to Monticello instead of Como Park), now we learn they aren’t capable of driving to Monticello and back if the weather is cold.
But not to fear. Rep. Ilhan is working on raising your taxes to force more of us to drive less. It’s her “stay at home and watch TV all day” doctrine. Looking at the snow falling again this morning, actually, I’m kind of on board with that.
That’s what they’re counting on.
