Just wondering ...

* Why is gas going for $2.50 a gallon at the Stewart's Shop at Albany and Foxhall avenues in Kingston but $2.61 a gallon at the Stewart's at Lucas and Catskill avenues in Ulster?

* Who, exactly, will benefit from Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp.'s newly announced service through which customers can track power outage repairs via the Internet? If your power is out, chances are you have no Internet service either.

* Why are there penalties and fines for excessive on-field celebrating by players in the National Football League but not in Major League Baseball?

* Why is Jerry Springer still on television?

* Why is Kentucky Fried Chicken putting all of its marketing efforts into promoting chicken that isn't fried?

* Why is Sarah Palin's new memoir called "Going Rogue"? Wasn't that the phrase people used to describe how uncontrollable she was while running for vice president last year?

* And why, oh why, am I spending my free time before work today contemplating all these things?

The people who can access the internet on their phones, from a wifi hotspot or from a friend's house...instead of driving home to see if the power is back on.

Actually, for power outages, with more and more people accessing the internet from mobile sources, you can get all your answers on your phone.

I rewally, really wish she'd called her memoir Going Commando instead.

But that's just me.

David in DC, ladies in gentlemen! ... still one of the funniest men on the planet - and clearly part of the reason I survived high school.
