A master of music and invention has passed. His signature guitar is one of my favorites.
Les Paul, who invented the solid-body electric guitar later wielded by a legion of rock 'n' roll greats, died Thursday of complications from pneumonia. He was 94.

When "The One" (and his family) and all members of Congress (and their families) all are forced to join the same exact healthcare plan that they want to foist on the rest of us peons, THEN and ONLY THEN will I accept their offer to join said healthcare coverage.
I'm not holding my breath.

So, if in July of '08 crude oil prices peaked at $147/barrel, and the average price of gas in my area peaked @ $4.65 at that time, then WHY when oil prices closed at less than half that peak on Friday ($70.93) the average price of gas in my area is up to $3.07/gallon???
LET'S DO THE MATH, SHALL WE?
71/147 = 0.483
So, 48.3% of $4.65 = $2.25
That's $2.25 per gallon... NOT $3.07.
We are getting gouged again!!!
