Reading the newspaper (yeah I know it’s not current, but it’s what I do with my coffee.) I see that congress is going to vote more money to the Cash for Clunkers program – photo of car being smashed flat. Why am I paying for consumers and dealers to buy and sell new cars (albeit gas savers) while all that good metal and other material is disposed of and/or recycled. Neither is better than fixing up the old including retooling the engine so it’s more fuel efficient. This is like tearing down a perfectly serviceable historic building and putting a new sucky one in its place (example: Old Sarasota train station), or putting nothing in its place because the big rich developer went bankrupt or ran out of money (example: Sarasota Quay).
I’m a lazy writer trying to get tech savvy. I’ve blurted into blogging to get some of my thoughts, cravings, interests, writings out into the web world. I live in Costa Rica and Florida. Most of my somewhat autobiographical writings are about those places. If you’re interested check in. View all posts by Jill Green
