Yeah, and I think I just saw a pig fly...

I sat in gas lines in 1973 in my first Mustang. Did it again with my second in 1979. On my fourth right now. Deja vu all over again, only this time it's going to be worse ... waaaaay worse.

Welcome to the beginning of the end of the Oil Age. Been predicted erroneously many times before, but this time the wolf at the door is real, courtesy of dwindling world supplies of easy oil, the political instability of the Planet of the Apes, and the Chinese and Indian car bombs.

Party on...
