ARTICLES BY
FRED TUTWILER
Gas And Energy
Why Gas Costs What It Costs - When gas prices go up, taking your frustration out on the local gas station may be a misdirected blast.
British Petroleum Isn't the Problem - We Are! The Deepwater Horizon explosion is the unavoidable outcome of the twisted relationship that exists between oil companies, politicians and the voting public.
What is Hydrogen-On-Demand? Improving fuel efficiency is not just a good idea, it's a necessity. Here's a readily available technology that delivers efficiency now, not 10 years from now.
Philosophy
Sure, PIGS Are Happy... But, I Wouldn't Want to Be One! When we complain about life, we create the very things we don't like. We need to change our conversations!
FAILURE: The Secret Path To Greatness - Failure can be a bold and creative tool for accomplishing extraordinary results.

Caribbean Cruising
Hooked On Cruising (And I Like It!) - It's official! I have a condition, a disorder by some people's assessment. It's called "Caribbean Obsession Disorder", and there really is such a thing. Imagine that!
Frat House or Dream House: Choosing the Right Cruise For You - Choosing the right cruise can be a real crap-shoot, especially if you've never cruised before. Here are some suggestions on what to look for, and what to avoid, when choosing your perfect cruise.
11 Expert Cruising Tips - Some useful, relevant tips and ideas, and other neat stuff you can use to make their cruising experience better.
Social Commentary
Where Are The Leaders? There is a disastrous state of leadership in our national government. Our political system has devolved to a state of territorial agenda, and one-up-manship. That's not good for the leaders of the free world!
The Problem With Christmas - Christmas is too big to be confined to any single ideology. It belongs to all people and to all of history. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, it we just allow it to be.
THE DIXIE CHICKS: Reluctant Warriors in the Battle for America's Soul. The Dixie Chicks have been ridiculed, maligned, slandered, threatened, boycotted and demonized all because they made a simple comment criticizing President Bush's decision to go to war. But, they won't back down. Good for them!
Virginia Tech - Maybe There Is Something We Can Do. The aftermath of the tragic events at Virginia Tech was so shattering - to my reality, my sense of justice and my belief in the goodness of mankind. But there is something we can do, and we ought to do it.

IWith varying degrees of pride, anxiety, stress and outright fear, you are joining the ranks of College Parents. It’s a new world for, just as it is a new world to the young’ns. Care Packages are every bit as much for the mental well-being of the parents as for the benefit of the kids. It’s a way to have a long-distance conversation with the young one who has left the nest. Instead of words, your communication gets delivered by sending something.

It’s a sad thing when a whole nation is brought to its economic knees by a dark, yucky goo. But, here we are. Much has been written and moaned about the dreadful state of gas supplies and our ever-increasing addiction to oil. Fingers pointed, curses uttered, lamentations wailed, committee hearings held. We love to blame auto makers,oil companies or Congress. But the truth is, WE are responsible for the situation, and WE can turn things around in a hurry if we're just willing to take a few steps.
