    Hi Rae,

    That picture in the on-line newspaper article shows the 2010 Prius new front in a much more aero informative manner. It looks quite good to me. Very nice.

    There were TWO photos in the print version... no idea why they left the second off the online story...
    the second photo was the one of me in the driver's seat. Everyone here has seen it, I'm sure ;)

    Congratulations! This is a smart move by Toyota. I wonder if any other auto manufacturers have done this. :rolleyes:

    I gave him like 8 photos. In the paper version, they have the one of me in the driver's seat. I don't know what's up with that!

    Yes. I know people. :p
    I did get to proof the article this yesterday, before it ran... tweaked a couple of things.
    The reporter that did my story is the same one that did the story when our twins were in a movie.

    Yes, I agree! I even complained to the reporter.
    He doesn't care, he's on his way to D.C. to cover the inauguration...

    Well it looks like I am going to be famous too. I just gave an interview to our local newspaper, along with several of Evan's photos. It will be interesting to see what they print.
