    Tesla Motors sold out their entire production run so far, and  the Big Three US automakers are all teetering on the brink of going under.  And it's not an issue of a small manufacturer making a limited number of cars vs. huge companies making millions of cars per year.  It's about people recognizing the value of more efficient vehicles and demanding them, while Detroit bounces up & down on its collective thumb and offers more and bigger gas guzzlers at steeper and steeper discounts just to move the damn things off the lot.  

    Sometmes I think it would be more humane to let 'em die this time, and let a new domestic auto industry rise from the ashes.
