Plug-In Hybrid Charging Stations

With the introduction of the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt (and other electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids), we need to start to create a market for these cars by introducing charging stations around the state. While there are plans for some localities to have pilot programs, there needs to be a much greater effort throughout the state to accommodate these vehicles. Widespread construction of charging stations should help to create a market for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids.

Iowa and New Hampshire

With Iowa and New Hampshire so close, I thought it would be interesting to hear people's thoughts on the presidential primaries. Several candidates seem to be able to put forward plausible paths to victory.

A Giuliani Foreign Policy

The September/October issue of Foreign Affairs offers an article written by Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani describing his foreign policy if elected President.

Mr. Giuliani needs take heed of the quote by philosopher George Santayana: "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Healthy Fire Initiative

Americans need to see the damage done by conservative policies enacted over the past seven years. Through Orwellian use of language and slight of hand, they have convinced the American people they are doing one thing, while in reality they are doing another. Bush's Healthy Forest Initiative is just such an example.

Justice in America?

I am incensed. This is ridiculous. Am man is convicted of multiple counts of perjury and obstruction of justice. It is widely believed he is still refusing to tell the whole truth to prosecutors. What does the President do?
