A Micro-Microbus!

This customized, tiny VW Microbus was spotted in New Orleans from the old streetcar that runs along St. Charles Avenue. I wonder with the recent run-up in gas prices if there will be more demand for such smaller vehicles.

Death of a Beacon, New York man

An Associated Press story dated April 4 stated that a 56-year-old man from the Hudson Valley town of Beacon crashed his new motorcycle in the parking lot of a nearby town. He'd just bought the bike when he lost control and hit a parked vehicle in the dealership lot. He wasn't wearing a helmet, and police were told he hadn't ridden a motorcycle in about 30 years.

What a tragic way to go; I'm the same age incidentally.
