On the hybrid thing, I saw a local municipality patrol car the other day, a Ford Hybrid Escape! I thought that was pretty funny, in light of my long term prediction that at some point one of the major nations of the world is going to start fielding a low-emissions, hybrid, totally green climate-friendly main battle tank in their armies. Abrams Hybrid? Maybe the next iteration of the T-90? Police cars are the first step. Soon we'll be paying more-than-our-usual top-dollar to defense contractors to retrofit our military with low-emissions catalytic convertors and climate friendly transportation. Didn't we have a bicycle cavalry at one point around the beginning of the 20th century? Mark my words...its time may come again!
