Photo of the Day II: Sarah Beth Takes a Ride

Sarah Beth loves this stuff.
Cop bike left in dryer too long.
My buddy Sarah Beth Jones of Floyd is talking a lot these days about the Kaplan guys over in Salem and their Dominion Electric Vehicles, partly because she's related to them and mostly because they're selling electric vehicles, which she obviously adores.

We're right on the verge of a revolution in vehicles and energy use--I hope--and these guys are out front with some pretty interesting rides. Electric cars and motorcycles (like the little cop unit to the right) are not new. They date to virtually the same instant as the internal combustion engine. At the turn of the 20th Century the auto industry faced its Beta-VCR moment and went with gas over electricity, much to our loss over the years. But maybe we can get back there. We can thank Sarah Beth for helping get us there.

These pix, by the way, are from Sarah Beth's Facebook page.
