I just noticed this new blog ad on my site. It's weird. Look at the text:

With one of the worst fuel efficiency records of any car company, Ford is trying to "go green." As another oil crisis looms on the horizon, can they turn talk into action?

It makes you think that whoever's sponsoring the ad is anti-Ford, but the copyright info says this is actually a Ford campaign. So, like, my blog is currently being sponsored by Ford. Huh.

I took the Ford River Rouge Factory Tour not long ago, and was struck by how utterly unsustainable their operations are. I really do wonder if they can do anything to stop their sad slide into irrelevance. Incidentally, this fantastic article from the New York Times muses on that very question.

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
