It’ll probably self-destruct

Food for Thought

I don’t think the pay-for-TV people need to work too hard to eliminate the competition of so-called “free” television. Judging from the direction it seems to be heading, it’s going to self-destruct within a few years. And we’ll all be stuck with cable and satellite, and then we will really be sorry.

New car, no sodas allowed

Walkin'

At 224,000 miles, my old green Honda and I have driven the equivalent of nine times around planet earth.
It was brand new in 1998. Bill Clinton was president and clinging to his office after an affair with an intern became big news. The Unabomber was in jail and the federal budget balanced for the first and only time since WWII.
Like the responsible budget, the new car smell didn’t last for long.
