Stay Alive Drive 55

You know you're getting old when suddenly a geeky line someone wrote in your high school yearbook...is everywhere, and not really geeky.

Alfred wrote this line because he knew me and because (a) he sat next to me in alphabetical order during major school functions like our graduation (b) he kind of liked me in a Freaks and Geeks sort of way (c) we went to a tiny school with 90 in our class, you knew everyone or (d) he was on his way to the California Highway Patrol Academy.

His words now come back to me with more meaning than ever as we have sky high gas prices and talk of lowering the speeds on highways and freeways again. What do you think?

Do you like the idea of getting everyone involved in saving gas by making it so that those who don't slow down pay a penalty? It seems like the basic sin tax, but it has been effective in the past. Just ask the old timers out there.....
