Tesla is trying to get its showrooms in New Jersey re-opened with legislation that argues that car dealerships are really repair shops. Teslas don't require a lot of repairs and maintenance, ergo sum, a Tesla showroom doesn't threaten traditional dealers. Except, maybe, by revealing their real business model. In sweeter news, today's National Doughnut Day! The celebration was begun by the Salvation Army in 1938 to raise funds for people in need during the depression era.
