NO TANK YOU: Howard Bashman has an amusing report of a tank-repossession case. Bashman’s summary might leave the impression that it is illegal for individuals to own tanks, though. Actually (as numerous emailers informed me last fall when I posted something tank-related) there are quite a few people who collect tanks, and a couple of wealthy individuals who have more working tanks than some third-world nations.

Is this a great country, or what?
