Save cars. Junk people.

I'd like to thank Attila for the warm welcome as his guest blogger.

I'll try to continue his wry, insightful commentary.

Let me begin my blogging career with this item from the Associated Press which reports:

"Baywatch" actress Alexandra Paul and another woman were arrested Monday after blocking the path of trucks hauling General Motors Corp.'s pioneering EV1 electric cars to Arizona to be destroyed, police said.

The two were among dozens of electric car supporters holding an around-the-clock vigil outside a GM training center in Burbank, where more than 70 EV1s had been stored en route to a recycling plant near Mesa, Ariz.
* * *
The group, which includes environmentalists, technology enthusiasts and entertainment industry workers, said the monthlong vigil would continue despite the arrests.

It's too bad that Terri Schiavo wasn't manufactured by GM.

If so, then perhaps various Hollywood celebrities and environmentalists would be taking part in a month-long, around-the-clock vigil to save her from being "junked."

"Paging Dr. Goodwrench. Paging Dr. Goodwrench."
