These homemade vehicles are crafted by Silicon Valley nerds (including one engineer from Tesla Motors) and Burning Man enthusiasts in a Berkeley, California, warehouse.

Sen Risch hopes by Thanksgiving, we'll be able to identify improvement with either the "enormous" spending package or the vagaries of an "undulating" world economy, or some other way - like with better policy - he said today in his first speech in the Senate, where they were debating the Stimulus Package. It passed, 61-36.
Afterward, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell gives him some love, as does Sen. Max Baucus - Democratic Senator from Montana. Baucus explains that although he strongly disagrees with Risch, he hopes to work together in the future on Western Issues.
