I Come to Bury Ceasar

William Rehnquist is dead.

You blocks, you stones
you worse than senseless things
…I come to bury Ceasar
not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interr’d within their bones

Shakespeare (Julius Ceasar).

All I can say is the Bush administration will be hard pressed to find someone as bad as he was…but I am sure they will do their best. With Katrina, Iraq, and now 2(!) openings on the supreme court, we are in trouble people. Big trouble.

Take that you stupid fuckers.

So here is something to think about.

Hummer H2 fuel tank size : 32 gallons
Hummer H2 Mpg: 10-13mpg
Cost of gas near my house: $3.50
Averge car driven (8000 miles per year): 22 per day.

Cost to fill Hummer H2 at $3.50 a gallon: $112
Cost to gas Hummer H2 for one day: $6.42
Cost to gas Hummer H2 for one week: $44.92
Cost to gas Hummer H2 for one year: $2335.66
Cost to gas Hummer H2 per mile: $.30

Prius fuel tank size: 12 gallons
Prius Mpg: 51-60
Cost of gas near my house: $3.50
Averge car driven (8000 miles per year): 22 per day.

Cost to fill Prius at $3.50 a gallon: $42
Cost to gas Prius for one day: $1.40
Cost to gas Prius for one week: $9.80
Cost to gas Prius for one year: $509.60
Cost to gas Prius per mile: $.06

Money saved on gas by owning a Prius rather than a Hummer H2 ($2335.66 – $509.60) = 1826.06
now this is if you only drive 22 miles per day (the average)

Frankly it should be illegal in this time of energy shortage to own a Hummer H2 or other huge SUV’s but even if it isn’t illegal is makes good finacial sence to not own one.

My Drive To Work

As I drove into work today I felt a great deal of despair. Gas is 3.50 at many stations, NPR is reporting that 100’s of people are dieing from dehydration and the sun because there is no one to help them. On one dock out of 1500 people waiting for a boat over 100 have died because of lack of food and water. Less than 24 hours after the tsunami people were getting food and water air dropped into Banda-ache. What the fuck is going on. Will people finally make the connection? Is this the event in which a world-changing shift occurs? After 9-11 many people said “we live in a different world now.” Will president Bush realize that now is the time to DO SOMETHING ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING!
