February 5, 2019, T+34, Day 11 Of Open Border Negotiations; SOTU Address This Evening -- Nothing About The Bakken

Tesla, Polar Vortex: not ready for prime time.
  • From Quartz: not everyone lives in California -- Tesla Model 3 owners are griping about frozen door handles.
  • From ZeroHedge: the winter is wreaking havoc on electric vehicle batteries. 
Fortunately in North Dakota, there are two seasons: winter and August.

From the second linked article:
If there’s one thing electric vehicle owners are learning, it is that extremely cold temperatures are likely going to lead to frustration if they don’t take extra special care of their battery powered vehicles. Look at it as just another added benefit to "saving the world".

As we push through the cold that automakers are using as an excuse for poor sales this winter, customers of some companies – notably Tesla – are starting to realize that things are a little bit different with electric vehicles in the winter.

Disgruntled owners of Model 3s have been widespread on social media and online forums, talking about numerous issues they’ve had with cold weather on their vehicles. People have complained about battery range draining and Model 3 door handles freezing up.
The Book Page

The Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, published in 1973. Three volumes. I only have the first volume.

I "read" the first volume last night. I closely read the first 100 pages or so, but then skimmed through the rest.

The "arrest" -- which covers about the first fifty pages -- sounds exactly like the "arrest" of Roger Stone by the FBI last week. No hyperbole. I'm talking about the actual moment of arrest as described by Solzhenitsyn. I'm not talking about the events after the arrest. An apologist for the FBI's actions at this link.

Gulag Archipelago. Where to begin?
