Why do restaurants crank up the air conditioning, even on cool days?
In some establishments it’s freezing. Reduce it a little, save on electricity costs, reduce energy consumption, and enable the customers to eat their meals without mittens.

In response to a reader’s comments on 7/19 about cars “merging” on the interstate and drivers in the the “driving lane” not letting them in, there is one little thing left out. The drivers on the on ramp have a big triangular sign that say “Yield” which means “yield right of way,” which means that the cars already on the highway have the right of way, and the cars on the on ramp need to enter with caution when it is is safe, and not “force” their way onto the highway by making other cars slow down for them. They need to “yield,” but somehow the meaning of that word has been lost.
