In the transitional period that must exist with new electricity based products, who is willing to take the risk on an unperfected product? Cell phones run on batteries and use the newest technology, yet we are constantly frustrated by their inability to stay charged without inconvenience or their inability to deliver in areas outside of society's grasp.

You must also be aware that repairs and replacement parts will be the most expensive on the market until these cars become old. What poor person will be able to afford an electric car? Most cannot afford a gas burner or the gas to put in the one they have. What about the electric bill you will have.

You will be putting your whole house at risk by running up an electric bill you cannot pay. Now Edison is on their way with a big gorilla in a white truck to turn off everything you own now. I cringe at the coming transitional aches and pains of a plan still based on the old cronies that are presently in charge of energy and big oil.

Besides, there is no such thing as an electric truck that can deliver a shipment of electric cars over the Grapevine north of Los Angeles.

My very old friend has a saying from long ago: "Anything with breasts or a battery and you're in trouble"-- sorry ladies, but it's a funny joke worth considering. It's only a testament to the supreme power of women over men.
