Lefty Progress!

This is the 'progress' that the GreenWeenies want:

In its obsessive desire to promote the virtues of electric cars, the BBC proudly showed us last week how its reporter Brian Milligan was able to drive an electric Mini from London to Edinburgh in a mere four days — with nine stops of up to 10 hours to recharge the batteries (with electricity from fossil fuels).

Oooooohhh! Neat-O!!

Except for just one minor thing:

...in the 1830s, a stagecoach was able to make the same journey in half the time, with two days and nights of continuous driving. This did require 50 stops to change horses, but each of these took only two minutes, giving a total stopping time of just over an hour and a half.

Escaping California will take time. Be calm. And be sure to turn off the lights when you leave.
