    Do you consider it permissible or acceptable to “freak out” about a sudden *40¢* per gallon increase in gas prices? That’s what many folks here are experiencing. That is an unexpected 11% increase for people who are accustomed to using many of the area Kroger gas stations – a real budget-buster for many. Please don’t trivialize it.

    Abramson is such a big ol’ floppy whore. Before Brown & Williamson grabbed their wallet and left town like a married john when the roofie wears off, it was perfectly a-ok with His Honor for city employees to smoke at their desk. So I guess now we’ll all be busy balancing energy production with environmental stewardship until old man coal kicks the bucket and the Widow Abramson can find a new trick to take his place.

    I wish I could access the Ali article on Biz First, but Insight is so fudged right now, I can’t access half of the websites I normally go to.

    Well, even though I can’t read the article yet, it sounds fantastic to me.
