The diesel option

We have noted before with a degree of perplexity that diesel automobiles that get great fuel mileage and are wildly popular in Europe have never been promoted here in the United States by automakers. Finally, we're glad to see that is changing, and the public is responding in a big way. Volkswagen is now aggressively pushing its Passat TDI diesel model, which can deliver up to 50 miles per gallon in highway driving. Auto industry analysts have said for more than three decades that Americans wouldn't latch onto diesels, partly because of the disastrous results back in the ...

INVISTA to host blood drive

Summer is coming and so is the INVISTA blood drive. June 5 is the day when the American Red Cross bloodmobile will be in the parking lot waiting for your gift of life. Did you know 1 pint of blood can save three lives? Increased warm weather activities lead to increased accidents and the need for a robust blood supply. The strange fact is blood can't be manufactured by any means other than the human body. The blood supply relies on your generous donations.

Noted and passed - May 14, 2012

• With the Major League Baseball season in its infancy, we're struck by one fact about the New York Yankees: the team must have the biggest -- we're talking in terms of physical size here -- pitching staff in the history of the league. Excluding Hiroki Kuroda, at 6-1 and 190 pounds the dwarf of the group, New York's starting rotation averages nearly 6-6 in height and 257 pounds. Hurler C. C. Sabathia is the biggest of the group at 6-7, 290. We don't know how well they'll pitch this year, but we doubt you'll see many ...

Creepy nation

Actor George Clooney is handsome and personable in the style of Hollywood male stars of the 1930s/1950s, which is a relief. But what a nation of creeps we have become. He is giving a supper at his home for the benefit of President Barack Obama's re-election, which, it is estimated, will reap $15 million from people anxious to say that they have shared a salad with the actor and gazed at the president. This spectacle is shameful to contemplate and it makes one wonder what kind of a country we have become when empty-headed vainglorious non-entities pay good ...
