Refer to the first post on this subject.  I had coffee with a dear friend this morning and he told me that he enjoyed my first post on this subject.  He is from Chillicothe, MO.  With gas prices escalating, he now rides his bike 6 miles (one way) to work.  His older daughter is driving now.  Like most families, money is being stretched and he suggested to his two youngest daughters that they can walk to and fro because Chillicothe is not very large.  According to their website ( and the 2000 census, their population is 8,898.  (The population of Livingston County is 14, 558.)  So, Dad is right about Chillicothe not being very large but the entitlement pollutant is in the air because when he suggested to his daughters that they walk he was met with one of those stares that communicates, “Dad, are you crazy.”  Every parent recognizes this ‘stare.’
