Questions for You

I have certain things on my mind. I am looking to you, dear readers, for answers.

1. A bunch of media reports indicate that Americans are driving fewer miles a month for the 8th straight month. High gas prices are apparently causing us to find other means of transportation, or simply to not go as many places. Question: Is this true for you? And if you’re driving less, why? Other forms of transportation or fewer late-night trips to Taco Bell?

2. Apparently, there will be thousands of hours of footage broadcast on NBC, its affiliate networks, and the Internet during these Olympic games. Question: How much of this coverage are you watching? Are you an Olympics junkie? A casual fan? Are you aware that, if Michael Phelps were a country, he’d be close to the top ten in the medal count?


3. Watch this video, which excites my brother to no end. Question: Do you think this creature is the fabled chupacabra?

Your comments on any or all of the above are welcome.

My answers:

1. Yes. I ride my bike as much as possible to and from work and/or on other short errands, but I’ve also opened a small business across town that requires me to drive more. So I try to drive less, but I’m afraid I’m actually driving more these days than I used to.


2. I’m a casual fan. I might watch some with the kids to give them a taste of Olympic sports like swimming or gymnastics, and maybe a little late at night after the niños go to bed. But that’s pretty much it. There’s just too much to keep up with.

3. I don’t know what that thing is. But it’s weird. If only we had footage that clear of Bigfoot.

1. I am walking or riding my bike to work as much as I can of late. I also traded in my Suburban (with urban assault top-mounted turret) for a Chevy Impala (which I pronounce im-PAY-luh, as in “Vlad,” because why not).2. I watch the Olympics only so I can find inspiration for my new Web site, “” Get your long-sleeved 100M Ostrich Taunt shirt now!3. That’s not the fabled chupacabra. That’s the fairly prosaic chupacabra, a completely different and altogether less-exciting species. It doesn’t so much suck your goats as it just follows them and complains.
