State Charging Stations for 'Lectriccars

Firstly, every Centennial Stater should follow Laurie Bratten on Facebook. She provides a daily rundown of the shenanigans going on in the State Capitol, ranked for frugality and liberty.

And I'll give her quote of the day for her droll opening:

"Widespread adoption" of alternative fuel vehicles is necessary to "diversify the transportation fuel mix." If adoption is widespread enough, perhaps as much as proponents would like, then the transportation fuel mix will not be diverse at all - it will be all-ternative.

The upside is that if everyone drives 'lectric cars, free charging doesn't represent a redistribution anymore (from petrol-heads to pointy-heads.)

The downside is too voluminous to get in to here.

But still a redistribution from telecommuters and transit riders, n'est ce pas?

Yes. All seventy-six of them. Perfect must not be the enemy of good enough.
