How quickly can a fool find his money again?

I currently have a whole bunch of debt. Hmm...I wonder how much I could get for my kidneys?

The Post Wherein I State the Obvious
It occurs to me that driving home to see your friends and loved ones over a long weekend should not be an exercise in figuring out whether you can afford it due to gas prices.

Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad that Shell, Mobil, Exxon, and the rest are having banner freaking years. Good for them; it must be nice to have a business where you can abritrarily run up prices by saying that "There's a shortage," or "The terrorist states are not sending gas," or "I really hate you guys so we're going to raise prices."

What does bother me is when I see the CEOs on tv saying that, although they are making more money than they ever have in the past and although they feel really badly about it, there is no way for them to lower gas prices.

Yeah. I'm sure they feel really badly about it all the way to the bank.

For those curious, I did go see my family, and a good time was had by all. I just kind of got upset when I realized that I was excited to see gas at $2.85. I nearly stopped to take a picture, so that, when gas is $6 a gallon, I can remember the simple, good old days of a few months ago, when gas was $2.85 at select, crummy gas stations in L.A.

Gas company executives, you've made my list of people to punch in the face when I see you on the street. Here is my list so far:

1) Adam Corolla, and
2) Gas company executives.

Hopefully, Adam Corolla will never be a gas company executive, or else, I fear, my head will explode.
