Our ever-reliable electric cars

In response to Tesla vs. the NY Times Follow Up:

Oh, let us not quibble so fiercely about precisely when our six-figure heavily subsidized electric cars will drop dead on us, Mr. Sexton!  Let’s just sit back and enjoy our “transformation” into a “sustainable” world where nobody moves around much more than a typical medieval peasant.  The algae-mobiles Obama promised us will probably work a lot better.  Today, Mayor Bloomberg mandates more electric-car charging stations in New York City; tomorrow he’ll mandate a dirty bathtub be kept in every parking lot, for easy algae refueling.

Reliable transportation is one of those planet-mauling First World extravagances that we should learn to live without!  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a Carnival cruise liner to catch.
