A friend of mine has a tesla auto, and was heading back from colorado and could only go about 100 miles a day. spent most of the time trying to get it charged up. I guess there was a blizzard at the time and the cold screwed things up.

the Royals plan is unsupportable and why the tax exrension helps is rather bogus, the Chiefs grab at unneeded upgrades seems bogus too

Michigan GOP lawmaker falsely claims that buses carrying March Madness teams are ‘illegal invaders’

https://apnews.com/article/michigan-republican-march-madness-6217e5cda406954993a299329b98572b

A Michigan state lawmaker involved in former President Donald Trump’s election denials is being widely criticized after the Republican made false claims that buses carrying college athletes to Detroit for March Madness were shuttling illegal migrant “invaders” into the city.

State House Rep. Matt Maddock made the claim Wednesday night in a social media post accompanied by photos of three buses near an Allegiant plane at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Maddock wrote that the buses “just loaded up with illegal invaders.”

Michigan seems to have crazier stuff happen for some reason. maybe its because they are further north. Heck, they still claim to see bigfoot in the UP.

I wonder when the video was shot at Arrowhead? Maybe at a Summer Jam? It probably was by the looks of it. The headliner(s) gear is behind them it looks as if. Duh. I just noticed the title. 1979. Sounds about right.
