Last week, as a change of pace from politics, my Sunday newspaper column focused on how I had become a supercommuter — coined by a New York professor to describe anyone who drives more than 145 kilometres to work at least once a week.

If you read newspapers online, you will know that there are usually comment boards under most columns and major stories, thereby allowing readers to post their own comments.
Most do it anonymously, using bogus email addresses like Iamayahoo@yahoo.ca, all which had a number of readers taking me to task for destroying the environment because of all the fossil fuels I have3 burned over the years
I was so upset that I went out and hugged a tree.
Then along came reader and friend, Daniel Christie, who
reminded us all of a magazine called Popular Science which said we’d all be flying to work with personal jet-packs by now — all this after downing our Daily Nutrition Pill, right after wakening from our Suspended Animation Sleep Period.
We wouldn’t be using ancient internal combustion engines because fossil fuels would have run out in 1958.
But that didn’t happen, did it?
