I "think" we're FINALLY over all the crap from the past week (and the last several posts). Nice to hear myself THINK for a change...LOL!

I don't know WHAT can be done to get it through the thickheads in the city regarding this. Business owners produce receipts SHOWING that they're losing money due to the ban, and still Council sits like a bunch of pawnshop monkeys (except the brass balls are missing). Is it SO damn important to ban smoking to such a degree that we fore go free enterprise, and brand those that DO smoke with a SCARLET "S"?
Within the past several weeks, we've been taking the *E* ticket ride at Disneyworld when it comes to stopping at the pumps. Prices have fluctuated from over $3.19 a gallon to $2.87 (as of yesterday anyway). I guess have the Whiting, Indiana BP plant back online is a major reason for the drop in cost. Then again, I can't imagine why the BP refinery didn't just "suck up the cost" over the past few weeks while they were fixing that damn leak. I mean they would STILL have a "captive" audience (read drivers in abundance) that require their fuel, right?
