* When capitalism gets it right: a five-year retrospective on Philly CarShare.

“In this region, one million people get to work without a car,” Lane says. Not always by choice, he notes. Car ownership, duh, is expensive. Once you own one, it’s only rational to drive it. You’ve already sunk money into the purchase, tax, tags and insurance.

“With car sharing, you flip it around,” Lane says. “If you don’t need to use the car, you avoid the cost.”

* Crooks & Liars catches up with the missing honeybees and colony collapse disorder.
