I have to disagree....Why do people need to work closer to home? As long as I am paying taxes, making a living and not sucking off the Government I should be able to work wherever I choose. I would rather see people drive a little extra to make a better living than have them make just enough to get by.

Why can't I drive where ever I want when ever I want? I pay taxes so I can use those roads. My husband, daughter and I like to go for Sunday drives. We take all the backroads we can (which is all we really have here anyway) We have seen and done so many neat things. Our daughter can't wait till the next Sunday drive. I don't care if it is "frivolous driving" it is those simple things in life that bring this family closer together. Oh yeah, and now that my husband has a great job 68 miles away we can actually afford to go somewhere. Yesterday we went 400 miles, had a wonderful primerib dinner, and bought some junk at a gift shop. Today my husband left at 4:30am to go 80 miles to catch a steelhead. More "frivolous driving" that makes life that much more worth living.
