The Sky is Falling!

Shit, I admit, it ain't good. But I think I fear the panic over anticipated gas shortages more so than I do the actual shortage.

Remember the Seinfeld episode in which George, after having convinced these people that he was nothing if not a gentleman, PLOWED all of them down to get to the door at the first sign of smoke??

I see Georges.

Lines wrapped around gas stations, horns blowing, arguments over who was next, sheer panic... And, while I haven't been able to fact check, I heard there was a shooting today in Atlanta, the victim: someone attempting to steal fuel.

Wtf? What planet are these people from?

Assuming the stations really will go a week without having their tanks replenished? Well... In that case, no gas means stay home. Mandatory bumming. I'm down.

(You know the panic has gotten freaky when the media feels obligated to calm rather than rile.)

AMEN, Key -- I'm glad that there are at least a few rational people out here. WTF is it with people? And of course, gas prices aren't really THAT high, adjusted for inflation and such. There are WAY bigger issues to worry about in this world.

I better stay home from work tomorrow. I'm all about conservation.
