Toyota Prius Comes To Town

Fantastic news for The Magnolia State. Toyota has announced that its next generation hybrid (which may include solar panels on the roof) will be built in my home state of Mississippi. Very good news all around: 1) It will bring much needed jobs to the state (we're not too far behind DETROIT on unemployment), 2) It will bring such vehicles to market sooner, and 3) The proximity of the production will reduce the impact on the environment by shortening the delivery process. Very glad to hear the news and hope to hear more like it.
Blue Springs, Mississippi:

"As part of a sweeping set of changes that reflect the state of the automobile business in the United States, Prius production will begin here in late 2010 at a brand-new plant currently under construction in Blue Springs, Mississippi."
