The Kool-Aid did not contain behavior-altering drugs, the guy who served the Kool-Aid committed mass murder, so obviously you did not drink any, you are still alive.

I am not invited to parties.

Most of the world has a much lower speed limit than America. Ours is at about 50 mph, which is optimum for highway economy.

Anyway, people going 70 mph on the Freeway are achieving more per gallon of fuel than people stuck in rush hour gridlock going 0 mph. It's that latter part that most governments are trying to address.

Lowering the speed limit for ecologic purposes will reduce the support of a large part of the population for anything ecological to zero, if not negative.

Has anyone ever successfully created a petition to have street lights timed?

The gubmint's idea of timing stoplights involves cameras, unfortunately.

I don't insist on a capital 'F' but France prolly does.

Skiing all summer, but the wine industry may not soon recover.

Did you know that when France's First Couple were hosted at the White House, the wine they served was from Oregon? $$$
