Gas Prices Drive Geos from Clunkers to Chic

With her 100-mile commute to and from work each day, she saw no end in sight. Then she rediscovered the Geo Metro...Solomon toyed with the idea of purchasing a Prius but decided that for a price of $7,300, the [1996] Metro was the more economical option.
I can understand wanting to get better gas...

Shopping is not awesome.

Unless I'm there to buy books or games, keep stores and malls away from me. Shopping is a waste of time, a waste of energy, and a waste of money. Please don't make me do it again.

The Nudity Cult

The Nudity Cult, by Liz Smith
July 16, 1965

Feel free to read the article if you wish. That's not...
