Pres Bush want the authority to set fuel standards. Could history be repeating itself? In the early 1970's, inflation was America's leading domestic headache. Congress gave Nixon authority to freeze wages. Democrats figured Nixon would never
put a cap on wages, and use that to say he fiddled while the economy burned. Well, Nixon suprized them by going to China - and freezing wages.
All this week, the President and Republicans have made energy proposals. Is this for real, or is this like the Death Row inmate trying to cheat the executioner by "getting religion"?
Call me skeptical for the moment while hoping something good may actually get done.
