Last week, automobiles in part of Nevada seemed to think for themselves. Locksmiths, car dealerships and towing companies were flooded with calls from people who said their keyless entry devices didn’t work.
In reviewjournal.com, Juliet V. Casey, J.M. Kalil and Keith Rogers quote Nellis Air Force Base spokesman Mike Estrada as saying, “Maybe it’s those little green men up north [in Area 51]. Are there sun spots? I’ve been trying to figure it out. It happened to me right after lunch.” Estrada had to use his key to unlock his car door, setting off his alarm.
