LOL...right down to the bitter end, just like the car race in "On The Beach

I am an unashamed sports car fan, and refuse to let go of my gas-guzzling Mustang. But considering that I fill its 15 gallon tank once a year on average, I have a lot less to feel guilty about than many Prious owners.
I live in a city that no longer has any passenger rail service, but has highways to/from it clogged with 40' semi tractor-trailers and 6-ton SUVs. The only train comes to replenish our downtown coal-fired power plant. The plant was being renovated for cleaner burning fuels until the GOP-dominated state halted the 99% complete project.
