The Rolling Stones and the EPA

I thought this was too much of a priceless gem to not share with the few followers of this blog. Apparently the lyrics were written in conjunction with the Kellog's advertisement staff.

I don't want to hear anyone say the Stones sold out so early in their career--this is the best Rice Krispies commercial you've ever seen and heard, isn't it?

California Sues the EPA

On a different note, the state of California is suing Uncle Sam's natural watchdog, the Environmental Protection Agency with the backing of Arnold Schwarzenegger. California wants to up the standards for emmissions from automobiles from the national standard set by the EPA.

Read the details HERE.

California has the right to set their own standards, but only with a waiver from the EPA, which, in untypical fashion was denied. The EPA feels their up and coming fuel econemy mandate will be more effective than the current Californian attempts.

I don't know the science behind it, but it sounds like there may be some state/fed tension at the root. What do you think? Who is right? (read the article!)
