For those who may not know, a Vespa is a motor scooter. Any time you see pictures of downtown scenes in Asia, you will see hundreds of them. They get tremendous gas mileage.
So I asked Beverly, "Would you like for me to get you a Vespa?" She said, "Sure, do you want one, too?" I said, "No, I'll just use yours. Because unless the temperature is between 68 and 70, you won't use it anyway."
I have a counseling session this morning:)
But really, it is going to be interesting to watch as the landscape of America changes. GM is retooling as quickly as possible away from larger vehicles to smaller, more gas efficient cars. My guess is that mass transit and rapid rail will be on the increase. We may even see the return of the passenger train. I can remember as a child traveling by train. It would be nice to do again.
It may take a few years, but America has always been a nation of ingenuity. I have no doubt we will figure this energy situation out. I will be interested to see how T. Boone Pickens' proposal to increase wind energy is received by our politicians.
I've said it before, but even as tight as I am, I would be willing to pay $5 a gallon for gas if we could tell the Middle East that they can have their oil. I am sick and tired of us indirectly funding the very terrorists who threaten our nation because of our importing of 70% of our nation's oil.
I better stop. I'm starting to rant.
