Anyone else have rodents chewing the wires and plastic on relatively new cars?

In order to be "green", auto manufacturers have been using plastics from renewable sources like plants.  It also turns out that rodents love the stuff and think it's really tasty.  A quick search on the internet shows it to be pretty much across the board of auto manufacturers.

John Kelly has now joined the ranks of the soulless 'empty barrels' in the Trump regime.  Disgusting the way they are trying to attack this Gold Star mother and her friends - who all witnessed the latest disgusting Trump display.  You Trump-etts gotta be so proud...


...don't ever make the mistake of believing you or our society would be better off if the government got to dictate to the press what questions are asked of people in power.

I think you are misremembering.  I doubt Tulsa has ever had international flights or customs and immigration facilities.  But if so, I'd be interested in hearing details about it.

In 1930, Tulsa had the busiest airport in the world.  "The first terminal building was a one-story wood and tar paper structure that looked like a warehouse. The landing strips and taxiways were simply mown grass. Still, it handled enough passengers in 1930 for Tulsa to claim that it had the busiest airport in the world." (Wikipedia)

Must be nice to be from the 'entitled' part of Boston.

Shelby is gonna  make the recruiting calls next week....




Wow, how tacky.

Defense attorney Richard O'Carroll said it was a hard time for him after learning the guilty verdict. He said if you take enough shots at someone, they are going to hit you.

Bynum's doing a fair job getting himself in front of people like us as he talks up Tulsa's fit for Amazon.

He knows it's a snowball's chance but this is a good podium from which to speak.  He gets folks like us to say "Look at Bynum go.  He's really trying to get us somewhere."

This will come in handy as he runs for whichever public office is coming next.

The FOX interviewer's earpiece was most likely telling her to "get that kid off the screen."

I guess I'm not seeing where Mayor Bynum did a bad job with the interview.  Tulsa's quality of life items were illustrated in the video which rolled near the start of the news segment this was featured on.  He mentioned the $300M new park and other amenities.

Personally, I didn't see him as coming off as far-fetched as we all thought this was a month ago.

That was my take as well.  I think we have a compelling story and a lot of positives to sell.  Our biggest weakness is our ability to compete in the bidding war with incentives/inducements/”bribes”.  Anyone now wish we had adopted that closing fund a few years back?

On that note, I’ve read several analysts who are usually critical of taxpayer inducements for headquarters/factories, etc. say this is such a potential game changer for the winning city that the inducements will pay long-term dividends.
