The Other McCain starts us off with Boomers, Millennials and Stereotypes

One of the unfortunate habits of journalists, academics and other members of the intelligentsia is to generalize about generations to the point of promoting stereotypes. It is somehow acceptable to make categorical characterizations of Baby Boomers in a way that would be considered racist — RAAAAACIST! — were one to make such broad generalizations about ethnic groups.

Stately McDaniel Manor - Electric Vehicles: Billion Dollar Charging Stations?!

Not long ago the Mummified Meat Puppet Administration (MMPA) allocated $7.5 billion dollars we don’t have to build 500,000 EV charging stations across the nation by 2030. In a stunning display of government efficiency, know-how and can-do spirit, the MMPA has, in two years, built—wait for it–seven.
