More Protesting, Peak Oil, Methyl tertiary butyl ether & SUV's....

NYPD to Shadow 56 protesters -- details on the incredible lengths the NYPD is taking to keep the most radical protestors expected at the Republican Convention under control. Police are now tracking 56 potentially dangerous people. Behave yourself, boys and girls Protesters classified as "terrorists"?!?! Maybe the FBI would be better off monitoring their own government.
