I had to laugh when I read the mileage of the supposedly Smart car.
We have a 1991 Honda Civic (hatchback) with five on the floor.
My son rebuilt the engine and tranny, replaced the suspension, exhaust and brakes. He hasn’t had a chance to do any body work on it as he’s in Iraq, but when he gets back…p>Anyway, the other day I bought gasoline (regular) and calculated its mileage (I’m a little obsessive) and it got 38 mpg. I do mixed driving — local and highway — to get to work and home, with the occasional traffic br> jam. I drive on the expressway at 70 to 75 mph. /p>
Har! Our hoopty Civic gets better mileage, holds four people and some cargo, is safer and FAST.p>Who’s Smart now? br> —

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
