Alarmism. All you need to do is consolidate a few trips and stay home a few weeknights and you've saved enough gas to drive to the lake. Sheesh.

I take it that boats get pretty crummy gas mileage?
There's always sail boats. Use the wind to help save some gas.

You don't have to fish at Lake Erie. All you have to do is walk along the shore line each morning and pick up the ones you to keep.

True, true, true. Along with high-priced restaurants, high-end clothiers, and travel agencies. Doom from Barry and the Democratic machine.

Just boat over to Put-in Bay and drink beer and stay off the water. Problem solved!

Sure. I'll take the state-run train over to the state-run party boat, wait in line, finally get on, then hand over my fish to the state-run game warden for state-run re-distribution of the "wealth". Can I wear my Mao fatigues too?

I grow weary of stories about the impact of gas prices. Everyone had 40 years to prepare. If you weren't ready , then you were just plain stupid!!
