The end of summer is always a time of conflicting emotions. Disappointment, because it marks the end of those warm lazy days, and excitement because the next great "thing" could just be around the corner. This excitement has always helped pull me out of the reveries of summer....until this year. I started giving my 15 year old daughter driving lessons, only to think "why bother?" It is increasingly clear to me that the skill of driving a car is rapidly becoming useless.
