I have to agree that the invention of a/c has caused our problems with the government.
[Thomas] Jefferson and friends deliberately placed the seat of government in D.C., primarily for the reason that it is a humid, malaria-infested swamp. Why? To ensure we did not have year-round career politicians!
Too bad they did not foresee the advent of mechanical cooling and place the seat of government somewhere like the Arctic Circle.

Editor’s Note: The following remark was made on The NEWS’ group, The NEWS Network, on LinkedIn, concerning what contracting companies are doing about the rising cost of gas.
Saving on the Price of Gas
We negotiated a few cents-per-gallon cost reduction from a local gas station when we set up a charge account for our techs. And we use a cash-back credit card for fuel charges. As long as you can avoid finance charges by dutifully paying the full credit card balance on time every month, you can get 1-3 percent cash back. Every little bit helps.
