Mr. Wiesner should be commended for being so up front about it with his landlord. For me, if my tenants are that forthcoming, I will try to make an accommodation. His landlord did not have to bill him separately - he could simply up the rent by a reasonable amount and be done with it. Why the big push back??

Commented On: Arizona Considers Charging Electric Cars Tax At 1.43ยข Per Mile

Sounds like a typical Arizona wing-nut solution. First of all, the vehicles that destroy our roadways are not electric cars but over-the-road trucks. Secondly, am I crazy or does 1.43 per mile sound wildly usury? I can travel the whole length of the NJ Turnpike for something like 15 bucks. If I guy a gallon of gas what is the tax on that. Even if it were $1.43 that would work out to about 7 cents a mile at 20mpg. Less at higher mileage.
