   No, they've been given a date (seems like it's 2006, but I'm not
positive) that it has to be done by. There's no reason they couldn't have
started the changeover a long, long time ago. If they wait until the last
minute, that's their tough luck. Frankly, I'd really like to see Big Oil get put
in a serious hurt situation -- like all the gov't subsidies taken away from
them, especially the military. If it weren't for those subsidies, especially the
gov't foreign policies and US troops in the Middle East, then 9/11 would never
have happened.
