    There's a good article out today in the Rivard Report about Tesla and to some degree the Texas legislature. The Rivard Report is an urban news magazine in San Antonio run by the former executive editor of the San Antonio Express-News. The article quotes a few Tesla owners including me (Greg Papay = cattledog).

    Thanks for sharing, very interesting. I would assume just another temporary hurdle that will be overcome at some point.

    Since our legislature meets every two years, likely not before 2017. With Model 3 in that timeframe, the stakes will be higher for both sides.

    If San Antonio was seriously considered for GigaFactory #1 due to resources and location etc that standing would not necessarily change when GF #2 inevitably will be considered. Except now Texas politicians have foiled those possibilities thru their own inertia and short sightedness.

    Yes, if #15 is Larry Page I'll be part of a Google sandwich.

    Nitpicker's corner:
    Can they fix the typo in the company name in paragraph 5 and in the paragraph that begins "Papay posed"?

    (Also "might" is missing a letter in the paragraph that starts with "The Tesla owners community".)

    (Also "15,00o" rather than "15,000" in the paragraph that starts with "Tesla Model S #35".)

    Editorial review and proofreading has been on the decline for years...

    This article was pretty good on that front. The only reason I bring up the nitpicks is because Cattledog might be able to get them addressed quickly and relatively painlessly.

    I wonder how long the authors have been waiting to use "Austin, Powers" in an article title. :smile:

    Firewired - Awesome. We should do a Saturday meet-up soon. My buddy just opened Alamo Beer Brewing Company just easy of downtown (I was the architect and we are investors), we could do a meet-up and show off a few cars some time in the near future. Let me check with him for a Saturday and I'll post something in the San Antonio section.

    BTW, edits done in article.
