Long commutes are self-inflicted

Everyone should consider their commuting time door-to-door to figure out their hourly wage. Don't spend 20 percent more time on a long commute for 10 percent more money.

I've been running five miles to work for 16 years, so gas prices and bus fares astonish me. When we run out of oil, everyone will have to get to work by biking or walking. Hopefully, then it'll start to cool off.

I recently picked my son up at Dulles airport and brought him home to Lutherville. It was a five-hour adventure in horrible traffic. To everyone I say: Bad commutes are self-inflicted.
