Mitt Romney dropped out!!!! Having grown up in S. Idaho, the thought of possibly having a Mormon President scared the bejeesus out of me.
Also heard on the news: Seattle's mayor has submitted a proposal to create a "sliding scale" of sorts for people registering new cars. If you purchase, say, a Hummer you're going to pay extra for the extra carbon emmissions. He said "If you're going to buy a car with complete disregard to the environment and global warming, you should have to pay for that the damage that car is going to cause." I LOVE IT!!! Although if the fact that they are directly contributing to global warming and our gas/oil crisis doesn't phase them, neither will having to pay $180 dollars to license their shiny new obnoxious Hummer. Is it wrong to want to flip-off every Hummer-driving cave-man I see?
