I agree on the idea of the natural gas cars, I disagree with everything else you said Pishaw.

Obama is a terrorist! Gay people are getting married! Save the babies!

That's right, I forgot. We are stupid. Never mind.

I'm happy to see this bus in service. A smaller one would be nice for routes with less passengers. Get rid of those dirty old diesels! I'm sure there will be the usual nay-sayers...but this is a GOOD thing...

I'm glad to see that we as a city are finally there. City's like San Diego have had "natural gas" powered public transportation for over a decade.
