In an article posted by CNN.com about “Drugs found in Gore son’s Prius after traffic stop“:
Al Gore III, 24, was driving a blue Toyota Prius about 100 mph on the San Diego Freeway when he was pulled over about 2:15 a.m., Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino said.
Who knew that a Prius could even go that fast? I guess I need to re-evaluate the purchase of my Volkswagen Passat.
“Prius: Environmentally friendly and almost fast enough to get away from the police”
Note: I am doing an experiment – a while back I told you that CNN.com was going live with some interesting technology from a company called “Sphere”. They are linking to blog posts which are talking about CNN.com articles. It appears from the blog posts which are listed that the only thing you need to do is to link to the article. So I am going to see if my post gets presented on CNN.com.
More to come later….

Ok, so I would say that this worked. I saw 6 direct views from CNN.com so my post must have been displayed at some point, but more interesting was that I was picked up by this website called “Slate” which appears to be a site that talks about what people are talking about. they were kind of funny as they posted this:
NotronWest at Sweet! echoes the surprise: “I guess I need to re-evaluate the purchase of my Volkswagen Passat. ‘Prius: environmentally friendly and almost fast enough to get away from the police.’ “
I am going to see how far this goes as I post a few more CNN.com responses.
