Tea in Etna; Boehlert on CAFE

This morning's Journal reports on the Victorian Tea Party held at the Etna Community Church Sunday afternoon:

Putting a modern spin on a tradition dating back to the days of Charles Dickens, the women of the Etna Community Church hosted their second Victorian Christmas tea. Volunteers brought tablecloths, food and tea service to share in the basement of the church on Upper Creek Road. Seated in groups of four, the women laughed and exchanged memories from their lives with people they knew and others whom they had only just met.

On the opinion page, Congressman Sherwood Boehlert writes on his efforts to raise fuel efficiency standards for cars, arguing that our dependency on oil is a national security issue, and that the impacts of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita showed us the dangers.
