Looking Forward by Ted Bellamy

Looking Forward by Ted Bellamy

As you might imagine, there are a lot of Priuses sitting in the parking lot at Oakland Airport. It’s near Berkeley, San Francisco, Marin County – all places where I’m sure the Prius sells very well. The rental car people were happy to upgrade us. The [...]

Better yet, the city did not have to spend your tax [...]

Looking Forward by Ted Bellamy

Back in the 50s, we had a neighbor down the street who bought a new car every year. A proud, lonely, angry man, Robert would drive slowly down the street every Sunday, honking his horn and waving at each of us poor saps doing yard work. In 1958 or 59, I don't remember which, he bought himself a new Chrysler Imperial. It was a magnificent hunk of Detroit steel - nearly 20 feet long, with [...]
