Unfortunate to see Phoenix metro area vehicle emissions up 291% since 1990, and up 86% per person since the same time. That's what happens when a city is built with almost no public transportation infrastructure and spreads out way out...
Oh man you KNOW I’m going to see the Twilight Zone 60th Anniversary Celebration; six episodes in theaters for the first time. Surprisingly though, they’re not showing Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
