A Holiday That All Right-Thinking Alamedans Can Enjoy

Hey, Mr. Grumbel,

Did you know today is Motor To Work Day? That's right - the special day celebrating the most efficient form of transportation - the automobile! Bicycle? That's only 2 wheels! It takes at least 4 to get anywhere you'd want to go. There will be festive lights at most streetcorners to mark the event, and colorful stripes painted right down the middle of the street!

In honor of this special day, fine restaurants like Burger King, Carl's Jr., and the fine German restaurant Der Wienershnitzel are actually serving food to people in their cars! Talk about health-conscious! No more worries about straining a muscle getting out of the front seat. I wish they did that every day. Boy, would life (and eating) be easier!

How can you take part? Drive everywhere for a change, and leave the motor running! Don't stop, especially in the mis-built garage that no one uses.

When you're done, make sure you park right in front of your house! Even those who don't usually drive should take this opportunity to reconnect with their cars, listening to the radio and letting the engine idle for an hour or so. You can make a difference!

Editor's Comments:

Every day is "Motor To Work Day" for true Alamedans. However, it's nice to have some recognition of our contributions to society. The Alameda Daily Noose and I will be taking an extra victory lap around the block at the end of every trip we make today.
