Begich drives to D.C.

From ADN:
Alaska Sen. Mark Begich had a kind word for Toyota today during a Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee hearing on the Toyota vehicle recalls, reports The Hill.
Begich told his colleagues that he drove his Toyota Highlander hybrid from Alaska to the nation's capital last summer, a distance of more than 5,000 miles, which took him 19 days to complete. ... "I'm here in one piece, and that's great. It's a good car, and I'm very happy about it."
What Begich didn't mention was that he drove the entire trip without stopping. Mostly because he couldn't.

(Actually, I think the Toyota problem is vastly overblown, but I couldn't resist the joke.)
