Homeward bound

I was touched by Ana Maria Spagna's essay, "Staying Put" (HCN, 3/03/08). As parents to two elderly-but-still-healthy, but nonetheless dependent and emotionally needy cats, we stay home quite a bit. And I've been hoping for a long time to hear someone in authority, or aspiring to authority, suggest to the American people that we might try to cut back on travel a bit - or at least ask ourselves once in a while, "Is this trip necessary?" I guess that's a good way to lose votes - where is Jimmy Carter when we need him? At least he turned the thermostat down.
