              BMW has a large advertising budget, Tesla, nope. Big media is owned by big conglomerates who get their handouts from ads, and may have learned one rule: never bite the hand that feeds you.

              My previous next-door neighbor works for BMW. He got a nice knock-off of an old BMW motorcycle while visiting China. Some of my own ancestors are Bavarians. I never did learn if my old neighbor and I are cousins.

              I guess we should alert LA about the pig roast issue. They decided to forego Teslas for tiny BMWs. You get what you pay for.
