Shortly after reading even more social-media bellyaching about the April 1 fuel carbon tax, I walked into town and witnessed the usual large number of parked vehicles idling for multiple minutes.
Particularly noteworthy were the exhaust-spewing vanity vehicles, a couple of which had the signature superfluously large body and wheels that don’t at all appear used for work or family transport.
Inside were their operators, staring down into their laps, probably at their smartphones.
I couldn’t help wondering whether they’re some of the people posting carbon-tax complaints onto various social media platforms?
