Transportation Issues

Posted in Travel with tags , on July 28, 2009 by Aaron

Normally I like to take the train to work. Lately I have been driving due to the extended hours that I have been spending there. Yesterday it felt like my tire exploded.

I wish it was the tire. When I pulled over and walked around the car to fix it I was really surprised to see an intact tire. Nothing was draging beneath the car or even visibly wrong. I drove it a little more and it felt like my front passenger wheel was about to fall off. Then while I was driving about 10 mph, to get to a safer place to leave the car, the brake seized up on that tire and screeched like I was slamming to a halt from 50 mph. I was still moving though at a snails pace. Of course the woman walking her dog started staring at me like I was some kind of jerk for driving like a jerk through her jerkless neighborhood.

Then I walked to the tow place (just like the good old days) and got my car to a shop. Any ideas about what might have happened before I hear back from the mechanic?

Mr. President

I have noticed something. Sometimes when I am listening to the radio or checking the news I hear people refer to the President of the United States as Mr. Obama. I thought that once you became the president that for the rest of your life you were either Mr. President or President whatever-your-name-is. I don’t ever remember hearing either President Bush called Mr. Bush, or what about Mr. Clinton or Mr. Reagen?

I worry a bit that it is a race thing and people aren’t giving him the respect that his title implies. Perhaps it is only his rivals and non-supporters that call him that and I just don’t remember it happening with presidents past. Either way, I think it should be addressed.

Hmm…

For some reason this doesn’t seem real to me.
