    And our under-$3-a-gallon gas at the moment is only going to make it disappear that much more quickly.

    Oil has been running out for the last 100 years.

    Never seems to happen. Just like the preacher’s prediction of the end of the world. (Amazing how Portland’s progressives keep getting suckered by preachers.)

    Billy, do you know Jim Karlock?

    I hope I am still alive to witness the end of the gas combustion engine.

    What a marvelous treat that would be!
