Billionaire energy investor T. Boone Pickens says that he fills up his Honda Civic for under $15 bucks using domestic fuel that we all could be using today. Should we listen, or is it all a bunch of hot air?

Just saw the movie Drive last night for the first time. Not sure exactly how I feel about it. Definitely captivating to watch, with a few scenes that will certainly stick out--particularly for their pronounced gruesomeness--but overall I thought there were some serious pitfalls in the story-telling and a few elements that just didn't make any sense at all. But there was some solid acting from usual standouts like Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks (quite creepy sans eyebrows). From a technical standpoint, it's nice how the filmmakers often eschewed dialogue in favor of creating visceral moods through lighting, expressions and, most notably: music. I was a big fan of the heady beats that permeated the score. It at once felt nostalgic and somehow futuristic. Although I need more time to process my thoughts on the film itself, the undeniable impact of the soundtrack is immediate. Listen for yourself...

If you find Obama's two-sided duplicity on this issue to be outrageous and completely illogical, I highly suggest writing to the President to tell him the significance of this type of flip-flopping during an election year.
Thank you oh Wise and Venerable Internet.
