John, I appreciate your take on the oft-told "aliens think that the sentient species is [insert storyteller's choice here]" story.

You did a far better job than any I have read. I particularly like the "humans breathe in the very excrement and excretia produced by the cars" point. It's true, and only recently a cause for concern.

Gas prices? I recall a trip my family took by car from Texas to North Carolina and back in about 1962--I was 8 years old. On the way home, as we crossed into Texas, we saw a gas price war in full bloom: 19.9 cents per gallon.
