What is so rare ...

as a day in June? Well, by my calculations, February 29 is about 120 times as rare and we just had one, with the requisite silly stories in the paper. Another silly thing we had this week was the person-pumping-gas photo along with a bit of prose indicating that people don't like $3-a-gallon gasoline. NYTimes even had one of those pix on their Web site for a little bit. Must be too damn hard to think of a new approach to the high-gas story, but I do wish someone would try.
