Without question, both the motorcycle and scooter markets represent a rapidly growing hotbed of activity. Given today's fuel prices, sales of the two-wheelers are soaring. Scooters are generally less expensive than most motorcycles, and they're also generally more fuel-efficient. Chinese manufacturers have long been expert at producing "knock-off" products for considerably less money than the genuine article. Scooters abound in China, coming in virtually every size and shape.

Gotta admit, I didn't see this one coming. Seems it would have fallen into the "pigs fly" lexicon. "Yes, I'll give up eating meat -- when an Indian company builds a new university and hospital in Hagerstown.

Tim McCown, the lone Democrat in this year's 6th District congressional race, knows he may be defeated this time around. People have told him he needs to raise $750,000 just to lose to incumbent Rep. Roscoe Bartlett and since he's pledged not to accept Political Action Committee money, it's going to be a tough road.
