Blight? It does seem a bit short-sighted to remove the battery backup from those towers. What's going to happen when the next big fire knocks out power lines?

I do recall seeing studies that indicate wealthier families tend to have land lines.

The oil companies have already dumped over $3 Million into a campaign committee called "Californians for Energy Independence". Expect to see lots of ads from them soon:

On Montecito Gambler Avoids Jail Time but Forfeits $1.7 Million

Obviously many commenters didn't read this article completely. The author also covers the scenario where you *do* own a car but keep it for more than 5 years by mixing in some biking. You still come out ahead financially.

Anti-car? Obviously not considering the author says he recognizes not everyone can be car-free - he clearly reinforces that in the preface to his piece. And it's not like he's making any demands of you. He's merely crunching some numbers and thinking outside the box.

It's funny how many people are so thin-skinned as to be intimidated by a commuter on a bicycle with an interesting financial analysis.

Excellent. That makes a lot of dollars and sense.

The potential for a lifelong reduction in health care costs and increase in quality of life is there also (the sex part was covered). From a financial viewpoint that's partly offset by a need to save more for retirement due to longer lifespan, but still a win.

A large number of political cartoonists and satirists have recently been focusing on the mental illness aspect of William's life and death.
