Today, I stopped by my corner store to pick up a monthly mass transit pass to find that they were completely sold out! The guy behind the counter told me this is the first time this has ever happened and many of the people coming in to buy the passes are new customers. Maybe the gas price has finally reached the point that people have decided mass transit is not so bad.
This comes on the heels of a conversation I had over the weekend with a friend who said that George W. Bush may go down as the leader that promoted sustainability more than many other (albeit unintentionally) because his mismanagement
has led to huge infringements on the basic freedom to consume to our hearts' content. What do you think?
