I feel horrible for Evans--he was poised to break out and lead this team, but he has been invisible. Outside of Fayne and Yarbrough, there's no there there. And YET: any team in the Valley can win their tourney this year. Still, this should be Muller's last year--he's had a chance to see 2 f…

Just get online: pic and videos abound. The SUV debuts today. Traditional truck owners are not the market, and it matters not whether this meets "truck" specs. The market for this has money, wants / likes status and luxury, and appreciates the flexibility of "truck-like" …

The main determiner is the battery. There will be three different options available eventually, hence the range listed. Advertised ranges presume "normal use" and a mix of city and highway. AC and heat will diminish range minimally. They are not competing on "value": the …

Of course this one was not built in Normal--no one claims otherwise. But to get to this point--actual vehicles--is huge. Every spec for every part now exists. My guess is that many parts will be built elsewhere initially and shipped to Normal for assembly, and that the transition to actual &…

Teslas are $100k and the issue is not market or price--it is that they have not been able to scale up production to meet demand. That will be the real challenge for Rivian.

The higher drinking age works in all countries that have it. Countries with a higher drinking age (21 as opposed to 18 or no age) generally have lower rates of heavy alcohol use and alcoholism. The most recent big study--done by the Boston University School of Public Health--concludes tha…

Seems pretty simple. Keep shorter-term leases in place to keep some revenue coming in until there's an actual plan / need for the property, at which point you can raze it. Keep upkeep / maintenance to a minimum in the meantime, with the understanding that there's no long-term plan to rehab o…

Easy answer: decades of intentional, criminal, and largely bipartisan mismanagement of the state's pension funds. Edgar actually started the "kick the can down the road" strategy for "managing" pensions (i.e. pushing that problem to future generations to figure out); the …

And Sessions is not only a college graduate, but a real-life attorney. He just failed Logic 101--or maybe he just thinks we are too dumb to notice.

"There is a misperception that police are the problem and that their failures, their lack of training, and their abuses create crime,…
