Ohio Heroes Draw Down on Mom & Grandma in Minivan

… because a five-year-old was looking at license plates in a parking lot:   DAYTON, OH — A family outing to an airplane museum turned into a horrific nightmare as young children watched their mother and grandmother yanked out of their minivan and forced to their knees at gunpoint. The Hill family of Columbus had…

Hero Opens Up on Minivan Full of Kids

Here’s a video of a Hero cop blasting away at a minivan full of children: All this began over “speeding” – a minor traffic ticket. The woman got mad at being mulcted by the buzz cut thug – and drove off. Not recklessly – but she made the almost-fatal error of showing contempt for the…

2012 Mini Coupe

Who doesn’t like the original Mini? It’s cute, but not girly. Sporty – but not overbearingly macho. A six foot man can drive it – and not look (or feel) silly driving it. So can his five-foot-five daughter. Or her 65-year-old grandmother. The Mini is also inexpensive – around $19k to start, which is cheap…

2012 Fiat 500: A Better Mini?

front

I did not expect to like the Fiat 500. But I quickly fell in love with it. It may be my favorite new car. I’d consider buying one myself – and that is an eruption of affection from me, a guy who reviews new cars but mostly owns and drives old (and ancient) stuff. There…

2011 Mini Cooper Countryman

Everyone (well, almost everyone) likes the Mini Cooper – the reincarnated, updated version of the micro-car Brit car of the 1960s. The problem has been that not everyone can use the Mini – which up to now came with just two doors and room for two only (or at least, realistically). So for 2011, the…

How To Become An “Enemy of Freedom”

Early on in a just-leaked 166-page U.S. government guide to officially declaring someone a terrorist or suspected terrorist, a passage acknowledges that “watchlisting is not an exact science.” The whole enterprise has “inherent limitations,” in part because “analytic judgments may differ regarding whether subjective criteria have been met,” the document states. “Given these realities, the U.S. government’s watchlisting process attempts to…

Border Hero Points Gun At Boy Scout

A U.S. border agent aimed his gun at a boy scout’s head after another scout took a photo of a government official near the Alaska/Canada border. Credit: gazeronly / Flickr Grimes, Iowa, Boy Scout Troop 111 was driving into Alaska recently when one of the scouts took a picture of the official, which provoked border…

Glitches

We just completed migrating to a new – faster/higher capacity – server. But as you may have noticed, this has not gone entirely smoothly. I am unable to access the site using my desktop Mac. For reasons we’ve yet to figure out, it (my Mac) continues to “point” to the old server – where no one is – instead…

2015 Cadillac Escalade

'15 Escalade lead

Cadillac may be having trouble selling its ELR electric car (see here) but no such worries selling its anti-matter opposite, the Escalade. It’s not hard to understand why. The ELR is very expensive (over $75k to start) but very slow. It realistically seats only two. And it doesn’t go very far on its batteries. The…
