Way Ahead Of You, Guys!

It's always a pleasure to wake up to a hot cup of coffee and the morning paper (well, the on
line version anyway). Nothing kicks off the day quite like reading through the world's headlines and reconnecting with the rest of humanity.

My favorite headline this morning was this from the USA Today and CNN:

Gas hits national average of $4 for first time

Whoa, way ahead of you boys! And the feds think that they're setting the standard, sheesh!

We've been well over the $4 mark for months and we'll probably hit $5 by the end of the year. It's a sad thing that a gallon of gas is worth more than an hour of work for most people in the CNMI.

What a slap that must be to the gas station employees who have to buy their company product to get to the station in the first place. Sad, sad, sad.
