Bill Clinton Quote
I remember this quote from Bill Clinton on Electon night in 1992:
President-elect BILL CLINTON (Little Rock, AR 11/3/92): "My fellow Americans, with high hopes and brave hearts, in massive numbers, the American people have voted to make a new beginning."
Change will be coming back to Washington in 2010, very different than it did in 2009. Massachusetts started it with Scott Brown, other states will follow....

Cash for Clunkers
CNN reported the following headline this morning:
Ok, so there were 700,000 people that got cash for there clunker, and there was $3 billion budget. Simple math shows that the average payout per car owner was $4,285.71. This suggests that a lot of consumers qualified for the higher payout. I am a little surprise by this since I thought that the formula was set up to the lower payout option.
There are currently 304,059,724 people living in the United States today. This means that roughly 4% of the population got the benefit of using cash for clunkers.

Garage Parking Lines
At the MGH West Parc Office Building Garage in Waltham Massachusetts they did something very creative. To help people park center of their space, they extended the lines to the walls.
What a creative idea! The garage was a little challenging to drive around, but once I found a parking spot, I was able to easily center the car between the lines.
This simple idea probably have prevented many accidental dents when opening the car door because of not centering the car to the parking space.
