Gerard, did you happen to read STATE OF FEAR by Crichton?
I'm a hybrid owner and think these people are morons. I own a hybrid because I don't like paying a lot for gas. It's my commuter car and makes up in gas mileage for my RV. Now I have more money for ammo.
I have been a fan of hybrid cars since they came to market. It makes sense pure and simple. For any person to castigate a person for electing to spend their money on a vehicle of their choice, as to also achieve better fuel cost savings, is f-ed up.
I like diesel cars, and my next car will be a Honda Civic Hybrid.
I have had 10 motorcycles in the past including a Harley dyna wide glide, I am as republican as the elephant, am 5 11, 224# and work out 6 days a weeek, and I murder bambi... and yes I believe in hybrid cars..
to hell with the idiots who ridicule hybrid technology....
