Maybe It Runs on Used Vegetable Oil

The recently opened Ramsey County Library in Roseville, Minnesota, has about five parking spots near the front door that are reserved for fuel-efficient vehicles. I don't think it's enforced, particularly, and I seem to remember some disgruntled letters to the editor about the spots a few months back. You know, the usual thing about nanny statism.

I swung by the library a few days ago; all the spots were full with compact (but not hybrid) cars, except this one, occupied by a conscientious objector:

P.S. - It's still a Cadillac, even if you remove the name above the grille.
