On Sept. 12, 2001, Mike and the Mad Dog host Mike Francesa drove to his local gas station to fill up the tank before coming into work. The station was owned by an “Arabic family,” and he said he could tell that the man working was understandably nervous given the previous day’s events, so he “gave him a slap on the…
Cars are dirty. Especially ones that spend a lot of time outside and not a lot of time at the car wash. More often than not, you’ll see these cars riding around with the grubby words “WASH ME” traced on their rears. And that seems to be the best that anyone’s come up with. Until now.
Earlier today, China took a huge step forward in their quest for a continual human presence in space: they launched Tianzhou-1, an unmanned resupply ship that will dock with their space station, Tiangong-2. I’d also like to add that I predicted this would happen back in 2012, when I claimed that their first space…

Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
