So what is a "daemon"? The origin of the word is Greek and refers to a minor spirit. As related to computers, it dates back to the 60s and MIT's project MAC. They took the term from "Maxwell's Demon," a hypothetical creature able to let only the hot air molecules flow into a favored side of a split chamber. Somehow this seems appropriate for me.

Hybrid car burns down warehouse
So there was a warehouse fire in San Carlos last week (9 November 2010), caused by Neil Young's hybrid car being left to charge unattended. What if your neighbor had one and left it to charge overnight while he slept. His house could catch fire, burn and catch YOUR house on fire in the process. Given the newness of these cars, and the obvious danger this un-tested technology poses to the public I think it would only be appropriate for the feds to announce a moratorium on hybrid and electric cars.
Hey, if that's a good enough strategy for oil drilling off the Louisiana coast, then it's a good enough strategy for the "Environmentalist" activists in California.
