Victory #1: An Ohio panel has approved a bill to allow Tesla to operate its two stores and open a third, as long as Tesla promises not to scare anybody with a fourth. Tesla has agreed, so the bill will move forward. It’s a victory, though some will say Tesla shouldn’t have yielded any ground considering victory #2:
Victory #2: A fearsome gang of 70 economists and professors has written an open letter to US President Chris Christie* about the folly of banning Tesla, and the absurdity of dealers’ arguments about their indispensability. Christie’s recent woes surely contributed to victory #3:
Victory #3: After seeing Christie’s cojones crushed in a public vice, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is taking the splunge. That’s the Monty Python word that means you’re not saying yes, not saying no, and not being indecisive.

* Hopes to be, that is.
