As we all heard the thunder of $140-a-barrel oil on the market Thursday, did your life seem a little gloomier?

Did the quote of a possible $7-a-gallon gasoline cause a nasty rash under your arms?

Doesn't that make you cramp up a little?

Does anyone really care?

Everything depends on oil, it seems. We hear about the oil just off our own shores that other nations are drilling. ANWR in the north contains millions of barrels of oil. And still our Congress, led by Democrats, sit on their royal behinds and refuse to lift the drilling embargo.

Come on, people. Let's all get involved in this fiasco.
