BACK HOME: Drove to Nashville this morning, did my talk, drove back. About 6 hours of driving for 4 hours there. But the event was put together by a former research assistant, so I couldn't say no.

I can attest that however much people are complaining about gas prices, it doesn't seem to be slowing them down. Traffic was flying. I drove the RX-8, which got a so-so 22 miles per gallon. However, they were FKMPG: "Fred Krause Miles Per Gallon," defined as "the mileage obtained by a vehicle traveling 85 miles per hour with the air conditioner set on 'MAX.'" It's a somewhat more demanding standard than the EPA version . . . .
