TD113: The Feedback Show #2

A couple of days ago, I was reminded of something that I had known for years, but had totally forgotten.  It seems that the good citizens of Oregon (and all passers-by) are apparently too stupid to put fuel in their own vehicles.  At least that’s what the state’s lawmakers think. As usual, I was wandering […]
