Making the News

The story featuring me aired at about 6:23 this evening. I expect it will be on the web site later tonight or tomorrow. It's pretty accurate, although I'll have to admit that I'll break down and use the air conditioning once it gets hot past a certain point. Sugarman's piece was on the money, right down to describing my van as having seen better days.

Incidentally, while the van doesn't look like much on the outside, internally it's in much better shape than you'd expect a vehicle with 280,000 miles to be, with a relatively new engine and transmission. I've been less likely to spend money on cosmetic improvements like repainting and reupholstering, concentrating my resources on things that keep the van rolling.

I'm glad I used the "To me, gas is only $2.70/gallon!" line. Sugarman used it as a "hook," as I'd hoped he might.
