A penny per mile?

Well, if they can build a drive train to replace my 20 mile per gallon 420 HP/720 lb/ft turbo diesel, and have it cost me less than 5 cents per mile instead of 15, I'm interested. But what will it cost... $300,000?

And in today's news... Michael Jackson, dead at 50, and $400,000,000 in debt.

"Original source - Facebook: Basij shoots to death a young woman in Tehran's Saturday June 20th protests At 19:05 June 20th Place: Karekar Ave., at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st. A young woman who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victim's chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes. The protests were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gass used among them, towards Salehi St. The film is shot by my friend who was standing beside me. Please let the world know."

This "sacrificial lamb" could turn out to be the Lexington and Concord of Iran's struggle for freedom. Add to that the peculiarities of Iranian culture, and we have a bombshell about to explode. 3 days and 40 days after the incident will be the markers to watch.
