  1. Remember that would-be kidnapper who fled the square in a black Prius? The AJC reports more criminals fleeing the scene in a prius – in this case, a gray one speeding away in Midtown.

    It is so strange to think of prius owners being kidnappers and robbers. Sadly, I am reminded of murdered who was caught in his mom’s gray volvo station wagon, in Columbia SC a few years ago.

      1. Can’t see the clip at work (blocked) but what’s wrong with someone driving a Prius (provided they’re not using it to kidnap, kill or other bad stuff)?

        1. nothing at all but the clip is hilarious. I’m all for hybrids, but the best option I could imagine hybrid wise would be a small diesel, I.e. 1-1.5l 3 or 4 cylinder turbo hybrid. the American public just needs to get over the diesel stigma first.

          1. +1. Our old Jetta TDI got 48 mpg on the highway and high 30s in city w/o being a hybrid. Imagine the possibilities.

  2. I had never heard of a Walmart grocery store before. I guess it makes sense since they have pretty much saturated the US with their typical store, the only way for growth is to enter a different market. Looks like they will put the little mom and pop Krogers, Safeways, and Aldis out of business.

      1. Yeah, but they’re no fun. You don’t get super sales where if you buy ten 12-packs of coke you get an extra 25 cents off each one.
