The Tesla Roadster has yet to officially hit the streets, but the electric Elise-cousin has stirred the ire of the Calfornia Highway Patrol. The electron-powered sportster chock-full of lithium-ion technology, was nailed by the po-pos not far from the company's San Carlos, California facility. Look out, honey, because both sides are using technology, and despite the fact that the Tesla utilizes a large portion of radar-absorbing composite construction, the Chippies still got a lock. [UPDATE: It wasn't a real ticket, nor a PR stunt. Instead, our street prophets are telling us it may have been a practical joke of some sort. We're investigating.]

DGJ-At the risk of sounding like the lady who doth protest too much, I was invited to the MM concert by an old friend. I'm not generally a concert goer, much less a "general admisssion" sort of guy. Getting too old to stand for that long. I think the saving grace of the show from a hipster POV was that Johnny Marr now plays with them. It was pretty cool that he didn't try to overshadow teh MM frontman...just layered in his signature sound here and there. However, I was more than a little dissapointed that they didn't pull at least one Smiths cover.
