This link is to one of the chapters from a book I'm working on entitled Bernice and John: Finally Meeting Your Parents Who Died a Long Time Ago. I don't know why I decided to post this chapter, except that automobiles and petroleum have been on my mind lately, probably because of a summer spent commuting to and from Cedar Point Biological Station, 286 miles from home. Comments are welcome.

This link is to a Truthout column by Henry A. Giroux. It's must reading. It's also time for real hatred and stupidity to be called by their true names and for someone in this country, some rational, semi-secular, intelligent, well-educated, person to find the words to counter the Becks and Limbaughs who seem so capable to reaching directly into our deepest fears - fears typically overcome by education - and spurring us to actions that history will judge harshly (e.g., those of Hitler and Nazi Germany, actions also stemming from racism, stupidity and hatred)
