Watermelons, Pickups and Volts

In May, Ford F series trucks, Chevy Silverados, and Dodge Ram trucks accounted for over 115,000 sales.  In addition, there are a variety of other makes and models of pickup trucks which were purchased by American consumers last month.  Sales of the Chevy Volt reached a total of 1680 cars.  We could post the names of the Volt purchasers, but for our finely-honed appreciation for the importance of privacy and the fact that the poor schmucks have probably suffered enough already.  Envious environmental wackos are turning green and seeing red over the disparity (although that's not why they are called watermelons).  But it shouldn't be hard to understand why consumers are revolted by the Volt.

Pickup trucks are useful for doing work and other important things that people need to get done.  Volts are incredibly expensive golf carts that aren't even allowed on the golf course.  In the inimitable words of Junie B. Jones -- "Boom, do the math!"
