    i think some --- many --- Americans are like crackheads on their oil and gas, and nothing will stop them from absurd overconsumption and waste

    they'd rather take a Princess Cruise with their extra money than insulate their homes

    they'd rather make 30-40 trips to the store in a week than make 1 big trip

    they'd rather keep the thermostat at 75-80 in the winter than put on a sweater and some socks, and keep the air con at 55-50 in the summer

    they don't even have money in the bank but they swoop down and buy up all those gas guzzler cars because they don't have (actually, refuse to get) the good sense to understand why those cars and trucks are being dumped at such low prices

    etc

    so i say do it. and i live in a rural area, so i don't want to hear that argument about how much it's going to hurt us rural folk

    Cornbread is square, but pi are round.
