Ending the Addiction

One man's prescription for gas that costs more than a $4 loaf of bread...

Last night while out on the Loop Y?, Elliot and I were discussing what to do about gas prices that are seemingly spiraling out of control. Although we are all somewhat similar on the political spectrum, this was one issue on which there was no consensus. Solutions ranged from drilling in ANWR to driving prices up even further to force investment in alternatives. No answers were reached, but it was clear that gas prices and energy is quickly becoming an issue that cuts across political and demographic lines.

With that conversation in mind, read Thomas Friedman's Op-Ed in today's New York Times. It includes one of the most damning indictments of the Bush administration you will read, as well as an appearance from an old friend and a solution that is sure to be debated here and the next time the group is all together.
