Go to my clean air page for info updated 6/29/2003

Car and Driver magazine's editor told me 6/23/2003 that tailpipe emissions tests are virtually useless. I'm still occasionally replaying the clip on my programs, hoping that AACOG Clean Air Planners will hear it and be embarrassed.

email
Brad, Do you really think that a few audio clips from your conversation with Car and Driver's editor will embarrass anyone at AACOG?  Know any more good jokes? Aside from Forest Mims there isn't anyone on AACOG with the brainpower to even begin to understand how wrong they are. Besides they have proven that they are more interested in using junk science (It's junk science when the monitors are 10 % to 50% off) to enslave everybody within a 50 mile radius of San Antonio...

Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in the left column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button
