I run across only occasionally a major paper columnist willing to stretch out and cover interesting, unconventional topics as George Monbiot routinely does. His most recent Guardian column, discusses radio-assisted car monitoring.

He starts by mentioning the bicycling death of a friend at the hands of a rookie automobile driver. From there, the discussion turns in the direction sure to infuriate both civil-libertarians and the Nascar crowd in equal measure.

Nice to see Velorution, a very good cycling-for-the-masses-blog, doing their own monitoring of the Monbiot-mobile.

Update: How will we ever make minor strides to an energy-independent and car(e)free future when someone hollers: OBL Wants O-I-L?

I sometimes wonder if The Plan is to have forces in theater and agreements in place to retreat to a kind of giant base in in the south of the peninnsula, say centered on Kuwait and including the largest Saudi and Iraqi fileds. I really hope that's not The Plan becuase I can't imagine how we'd be able to hold that turf for long.

Perhaps. All the future military planning centers around the Capsian Sea scenario. This info is relatively easy to find out as the war-gaming and integration exercises typically specify that the tactical maps use Caspian quadrants.

So we have talk/action in the north (Caspian), central (Iraq), and south (Kuwait). That basically sounds like a "cut the snake in half" Plan, or (to me) a "I have no idea what's going on" Plan.
