If rising gas prices are curtailing driving, as so many of the usually reliable sources are reporting, I sure haven’t seen it here in Bibleburg.
I drove the Subie north to Whole Paycheck yesterday and felt like a minnow caught up in a salmon run. Eighteen-wheelers, SUVs and pick-em-up trucks zooming by at 10 to 20 mph over the 65-mph limit, honking and swerving, tailgating and gesticulating. In short, just another day on the American highway.
But clearly, The People are suffering:
“We have an au pair from France, and she recently filled up our minivan and gave me a bill for $70,” said Melanie Janin, a mother of three from Bethesda. “I was like, ‘Oh, my God.’”
Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.
