This should be a piece by Jack Neworth’s “Laughing Matters.” To steal a word from Kevin McKeown’s vocabulary, I also was “gob smacked” when I read that article about installing talking gas pumps in Santa Monica so we could be more like San Francisco and Berkeley. Now your pump will tell you that you are guilty of causing climate change when you use this gasoline.

Climate change is a very sensitive subject and should not be further muddled by such a costly, harebrained idea.

Dear Mayor, the taxpayers of Santa Monica are the ones that will be “gob smacked” when they see how much your talking gas pumps will cost them. However, they might pay for it if the pumps would say, “Replace the City Council.”
