Chevron BS

This poster for Chevron is all over the place in San Francisco, and every time I see it it just annoys me. "I will leave the car at home more" - why would Chevron want anyone to keep their car home? That's how they make their money. It's like the meatpacking industry sponsoring vegetarianism.
I am all for corporations trying to do good and improve their image along the way, but there needs to be a minimum of credibility for this to work. And while we all have our responsibility in keeping the environment clean, I don't see Chevron taking much responsibility here. This is as exploitative as it gets. Next time I don't keep my car home, I don't think I'll refill at Chevron.

This week-end, L and I drove across the bay to pay an afternoon visit to Sausalito. Why? Well, why not. Once we established that Sausalito had a pet shop, we had to check that out, but not before going through the marina, which hosts some truly weird things, like this Taj Mahal replica, or this mutant floating log cabin.
