Hybrids and Fuel Economy by GLRC Environment Report

The GLRC's Chuck Quirmbach reports:
Some hybrid car owners are starting clubs to socialize and to learn how to squeeze even more miles per gallon out of their fuel-efficient vehicles. The number of hybrid owners is still small enough that the owners feel a little "special."

The GLRC's Dustin Dwyer writes:
Today's cars and trucks are the heaviest, fastest and most powerful vehicles on the road in a generation, but according to a new report from the Environmental Protection Agency, these vehicles have stalled when it comes to fuel economy.

Eat Your Weeds!

GLRC's Julie Grant writes:
Your barbeque grill isn't the only place to find food in your backyard. There are lots of plants out there to eat. But most of us call them weeds.
She contiues:
This time of year, Peter Gail also recommends sautiing the buds or petals from orange and yellow daylilies. He's also a big fan of dandelions. He suggests looking for the young, tender leaves because they're less bitter. Gail says he believes dandelions were brought to America by Italian immigrants. They're used in lots of Italian recipes:

"80 percent of the things we call weeds were vegetables brought here by immigrants. That's one of the reasons most of the things we call weeds in our backyards aren't indigenous plants. They aren't plants that were from America. They're plants that are from Europe and Asia and from South America."

Check out Virtual Italia for more recipes and You Grow Girl!, whose
"main objective has always been a commitment to producing a site that promotes exploration, excitement and a d.i.y approach to growing plants without the restrictions of traditional ideas about gardening."
Browse through "edible weeds" books at RawFoods.com with titles including "The Edible Flower Garden" and "Stalking the Wild Asparagus".

Tom Hayden, Rolling The Stone by Jack Lessenberry's Essays and Interviews

Jack Lessenberry interviews Tom Hayden who
was a suburban kid from Royal Oak who became the man who the New York Times called "the single greatest figure of the 60s student movement." Today, Hayden lives in Los Angeles, where he writes, teaches, and fights for a variety of causes.
He continues:
Now, there is a new war. Hayden might well say, I've done my part. He has things to do, books to write, and a six-year-old son. But instead, he's in there, pushing the stone, patiently trying again to save us from our own folly.

I think you have to admire that.
