Transportation

My view, not anyone elses.

Do I think we should have a gas tax increase?
yes

Do I think a gas tax is regressive?
No, I think having gasoline is a bit of a luxury/addiction, especially when someone uses too much of it. Also gas tax goes directly to it's purpose of maintaining highways, so vehicles can stay in better shape.

Bottled Water

Recently I seen on Lakeland PTV that Bemidji State University student government decided to recommend banning sale of bottled water on campus.

I think the intent is good, however there can be unforeseen consequences.
I use filtered water instead of bottled water most of the time. The water from the faucet is usually as good a quality as bottled water anyway. It has less waste. Less transporting of water and bottles. Less weight to carry.
