The 411 on Arkansas's electric and hybrid cars

In August 2008 at an Ohio town hall meeting, President Obama said that he was committed to seeing one million plug-in electric hybrids (PHEV) on American roads by 2015. According to Pike Research, a Colorado-based clean-technology consulting firm, Obama overshot, but just a wee bit. Pike claims that U.S. roads will host 667,000 PHEV's by 2015, but that the million mile-marker could be as close as 2016. Even so, PHEV's, EV's (electric vehicles) and supporting infrastructure have barely trickled into Arkansas. Currently the U.S. has more than 5,000 public charging stations. Only five of these are located in the Natural State.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
