I was amazed as I was on my way to work this morning, in the very thick fog, at how many drivers didn’t have their headlights on. I see this not only in fog, but well after sundown and in the pouring rain! Just because you might be Superman or woman, and be able to see in the dark or inclement weather, doesn’t mean that we can see you! Please save your life and someone else’s by having on your lights at the proper times. Thank you!

Experts who know everything are now saying that record cold temperatures are actually caused by global warming. If this is true, I guess it’s just a matter of time until we freeze to death from global warming. Statistically, you can’t make a case for global warming. If the Earth is 4.6 billion years old, then 100-plus years of recorded temperatures mean nothing. If you think we’ve got too much global warming, wait until you find out how much global ignorance we’ve got.
