What’s that smell on the airplane?

- Rosamond

Virgin Air flew from London to New York using “sustainabl­e fuel.” The only problem was they had to fumigate the aircraft because it smelled like McDonald’s French fries.

I see that some blue city mayors are blaming Hyundai and Kia for the spike in auto thefts because they made their cars easier to steal.

Up until 1913 Americans kept all their earnings. Despite this, America still had schools, roads, colleges, vast railroads, subways and an army and a navy.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Miranda rights do not apply to illegal immigrants and deportatio­n hearings. In other words, they don’t have to be warned that what they say can be used against them and they don’t have a right to a free attorney.

According to the US Department of Energy out of 282,000,000 registered vehicles in the United States, 1.2% are EVs or hybrid. More than 3000 automobile dealers signed onto a letter to the old fool in the White House asking him to slow down on the mandated two-thirds vehicles sold be EV by 2032. While the goals of the regulation­s are admirable, they require consumer acceptance to be a reality, with each passing day it becomes more apparent that this EV mandate is unrealisti­c based on current and forecasted demand. Already, electric vehicles are stacking up on our lots, which is our indicator of customer demand in the marketplac­e. Seems electric vehicles are more expensive, less reliable and have shorter range than their gasoline powered counterpar­ts.

I remember seeing a interview years ago with Sandra Day O’Connor where she remembered sitting on the front porch where she grew up shooting ground squirrels with a single-shot .22 rifle.
