San Mateo is on the San Francisco Peninsula, just north of where I work. The AP published a photo of the price at the pump at a Shell station, along with a suggested solution to the problem. (Hint: It has two wheels and no gasoline motor). Via Jym.
Other random stuff:
I saw a really cool children's book last night: Mike and the Bike by Mike Ward with a forward by Lance Armstrong and audio CD of the text of the bike by Mr. Phil Liggett himself. There's even a Mike and the Bike blog.
The Hybrid Debate Among the debates: Would drive more if our cars had a lower environment impact? Sponsored by Lexus.
Thanks for the mention Fritz. Glad to hear you are starting to feel better.
My four year old absolutely loves Mike and the Bike. He has a poster vin his room and he listens to the CD that came with the book all the time. I pointed out Phil Liggett at the Tour de Georgia this year and he wasn't particularly excited until I said, "that is the guy who reads Mike and the Bike on your CD". During the TdF, my son referred to Mr. Liggett as the Mike and the Bike guy every time he saw him on TV. I'll have to take the book along for Phil to autograph next year. I am sure that he would be glad to meet one of his younger fans.
