In the Humble Opinion of LittleBill, Socialist, Atheist, and Humanist
I LOVE MY PRIUS

A few moments ago, I was watching a CNN newswoman talking on the telephone to a representative of Toyota about her Prius. The Toyota rep, unfortunately, evidently either did not know about the problems currently in the news, or was reluctant to give any information on the subject. The CNN newswoman should have made sure she was talking to a thoroughly qualified representative.

Getting the wrong person on the phone is a problem which confronts many people when contacting businesses of any sort. That may have been the problem in this case. I have had excellent service when contacting the Toyota dealer here in Goleta for any reason.

Unfortunately, I am a month away from 87 years, but fortunately, I was intelligent enough to recognize that fact while driving one day. So I gave my precious car (and my freedom), to my daughter. (The car was free to her, by the way, but she is now saddled with the burden of carrying me.)

So far as I know, there is nothing wrong with my daughter’s Prius, even though it falls within the time period of possible problems. In any event, what I want you to know is that I Love My Prius and always will.

Hi little Bill! I was thinking about you when I heard this. Don't take any chances, your daughter should bring it down and get the okay or fix that way if something happens it is their fault!

Lil' Bill, we did CASH-4-CLUNKERS and said good-bye to our 1994 Infinity J-30, one of the most stylish cars I've ever owned. We picked up a Prius to take its place. Ugly. But I've come to love it. My sons recommended it. Two of them now own Prius. One of them called last night to apologize for his recommendation. I would hear nothing of it. Even as I look forward to this weekend's drive down to the Evil Empire (L.A.) and back in my "death trap", I feel safer than I would have felt in my J-30. If, per chance, I do not return alive, remember one thing: I died hating Bush.

Hey Patriot! Come visiting over to The Vigil, will you? From time to time?

This anti-Prius propaganda is a part of a carefully orchestrated but transparent buy-American advertising campaign!

Hey! I survived the drive! (Thanks everyone for asking-NOT!) Met another Prius owner on the way home, filling up at CostCo: we agreed that one of the spin-offs from the propaganda Doc alludes to, is that we Prius owners not have a blanket excuse for driving errors - we can blame it on the accelerator. Or the brakes. Or the winshield wipers. Or.....
