Back from vacation

I haven't posted in a while I was on vacation at beautiful Lake Oneida, NY, just outside of Syracuse. 
I always enjoy going back to Upstate New York, having spent the first 25 years of my life there. But it does provide daily reminders of the utter pointlessness of some government regulations. On the other hand, because the Oneida Indian Nation owns gas stations in the area, I was able to avoid two of them. First, their gas stations don't require customers to squeeze the handle the entire time that gas is pumping, unlike in the rest of New York. Also, they sell no-ethanol gas, so I was able to take great pleasure in avoiding one of the most wasteful, pointless, and foolish policies in our history.
