This happened in my model Y three weeks ago. I always have a glass break/seat belt knife dongle that is always with me just in case. And my kids all know how to pop the emergency latch. It’s a great car, but this is an absurd design defect.

I'm sad to report the death of Ed Stone, the NASA scientist who was the heart & soul of the Voyager program. Spending time with him for my Discover magazine profile was a highlight of my career.

I did my best to capture the experience:

Private citizen found guilty of lying about a drug addiction to buy a gun. Sounds like he should be punished. Oh, it’s the President’s son? Sounds like he should be punished. This isn’t hard.
