    The National Resources Defense Council wants to run an ad to stop Congress from opening offshore oil drilling, as Bush has done by lifting his father's Executive Order.

    The ad is attached. More info at NRDC Action Fund.

    Brilliant. I really amazes me that anyone thinks that offshore drilling is going to really solve anything, esp in the short term.

    People still don't understand the economics of buying a Prius so do you really expect them to understand something as complex as the oil economy? Come on now Tripp, you are giving people too much credit expecting otherwise... :p After reading the responses from the citizens of Sacramento regarding the Prius article Dogfriend and myself were in, I am amazed that the majority of people are even allowed to breed. Wait, I was that ignorant once upon a time as well. Hahaha
