… when I’m a big, powerful blogger, I’ll get offers like this:

CHARGING IN MY GARAGE RIGHT NOW:  A NISSAN LEAF.  Actually, it’s fully charged  this morning after about 12 hours on the 110v portable charger.  No, I didn’t buy one:  The Nissan folks loaned me one overnight to test-drive and blog about.  I’ll post a full report later, but the short version is that it’s surprisingly roomy and quite fun to drive.

For now, I’ll have to live with this:

DRI – The Voice of the Defense Bar, a 22,000 member national lawyer organization, recently installed Pittsburgh trial attorney Henry M. Sneath as DRI president at the Annual Meeting, held in Washington, D.C. The attached press release is for your immediate use, please contact me if you’d like a photo of Mr. Sneath.

Yeah, yeah, cars are very nice and all, but who is the one who will have bumper sticker companies flocking to his door?

Quite frankly you already are that level of blogger in my eyes. I read your blog several times a day, and appreciate your opinions.

Uh oh! Little green with jealousy there, Herr Jacobson! Tsk. Tsk. 🙂

No, I didn’t buy one: The Nissan folks loaned me one overnight to test-drive and blog about.

Oh, yeah, that’s going to be a totally unbiased review.

Be careful what you wish for: there’ve been two fires this year attributed to charging a Leaf in a garage.

Yeah, right about the fires. If you had gotten one to test drive you or the wife may have been too tired to drive it today.

One or both would have been on ‘fire watch’ during the night to possibly prevent the house from burning down. You should be thankful.

I’m betting Glenn talked Dr. Helen into ‘fire watch’ duty last night. Probably convincing her he needed to be fully rested for the test drive, etc. 🙂

My, my – never noticed your eyes are green. ;-p

Poor ba-bee.

I love you as much as The Puppy Blender™ – you’re a must-read several times a day.

Uh…Professor…if I ever see you driving a Nissan Leaf you will be “dead to me”:)

Another “clean” energy, electric car? I keep slapping my forehead for skipping class the day the the earth-science professor explained just how we get “clean” electricity when we burn “dirty” coal. Is there something about copper wire which cleans the electricity?

And I agree with ClinkinKy – anyone driving a Nissan Leaf is no friend of mine.

Today’s Fortune cookie: “Autumn smells like Leafs burning in the yard.”

Considering US Taxpayers funded both the R&D for it and are paying for a $7500 rebate on the sticker-price, shouldn’t Nissan be providing us ALL a Leaf to test drive for a weekend?
