No Air... No Air

I can't resist this. Kind of tongue in cheek, but a funny story in Wired about how the tire gauge industry supports Obama for president. The tire gauge industry? I wonder if they have a lobbying group. I am reminded of the proposal former state rep Frank Pistella floated to require gas stations to provide free air, which is about as painless a gas saving idea as you can get.... and that was floated before the bulk of the recent run up in gas/oil prices. Probably too simple an idea for the folks in Harrisburg to focus on. Anyone try to find air at your local gas station turned convenience store recently. Whether for gas conservation or sheer safety it's a good thing to do a lot more than most of us do (because we can't find air?)
