In 1964, the Oldsmobile 4-4-2 was named that for its four-barrel carburetor, its four-speed manual transmission, and its dual exhaust. By the time it dwindled to an option package on the 1991 Calais, it meant four-cylinder engine, four valves per cylinder, and two camshafts.

In a (successful) effort to avoid Alabama-LSU traffic, we drove to Gordo last weekend through Jasper, Oakman, Berry, Bankston, Stough, and Fayette. It was a truly lovely drive, and I’m always pleased to see new-to-me parts of Alabama.
A mini-review: I tried a pair of Duluth Trading’s Armachillo boxer briefs, which supposedly have a cooling effect because of embedded microscopic bits of jade.
