GAUGES: Gotta admit I'm more than a little irritated by the stoopidity of the current Republican campaigners' recent ridicule of Obama's suggestion to keep your tires properly inflated. Living in a rough-road part of Arizona, I've grown more aware of my tires' inflation levels than I was in Illinois, but I know there were years when I didn't check my tire inflation as consistently as I do today. I've seen and read this simple suggestion in a multitude of news stories and articles over the past few months - most of which make the point that do so could result in regular savings for the savvy car owner. So, what? It's not a candidate's place to make common sense suggestions?
