Baruch likes being sanctimonious.
I wouldn't know. Put him on my ignore list long ago.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful

The first guy to prove cross country in the US was Lt Eisenhower.

Interesting.  Tell us about that.

Correction in 1919 ... he was a Major, not a Lieutenant ... and not the Lt Col claimed in the article.

What do you mean by "prove cross country"?  I don't care if he was a major or a Lt.

He got credit, not the other guys ... that it could be done.  Because of who he was later.  Typical Army.  If one of the other guys on the expedition had become famous, became President, authorized the interstate highway system ... she would have gotten credit ;-)  Maybe it was his wife's idea for him to go?  Maybe he was just trying to spend time away from her?  Before 1919, except for trains, you couldn't get from coast to coast overland by motor vehicle.  Their expedition barely made it as it was.  Conestoga wagons don't count.

No, I mean I don't understand what "prove cross country" means.  You have to enlighten me on that one.  I know what Eisenhower did as President you *%#*  LOL!!

One plausible solution to long charges is swapping out batteries at fuel stations.
The real solution is to have solar-powered cars - coming soon to a road near you!

Too cloudy here and I like to drive at night using a car kept in the garage.  Waiting for fuel cells.  Swappable would be good though.
