Well duh

The Los Angeles Times and other media today ran frantic stories noting how rising gasoline prices are prompting rises in mass transit ridership and telecommuting as well as altering vacation plans. Um. Yeah. Isn’t this all a given? Sadly, though, I guess it’s just another sign of our reactive society. Is it better late than never? It would really be nice to have had effective mass transit network and more robust communications infrastructure before the current price increases hit.

Anyhow, don’t say nobody saw this coming.

Apparently the Times isn’t alone in the obvious department. The Star ran a similar story today. I guess it’s good the story’s getting localized, and I don’t blame Stephanie for it. Still, my response remains, “Well duh.”
