An excerpt from a lengthy interview American author David Foster Wallace (author of "Infinite Jest") did for German television (ZDF.com) in 2003. In this clip DFW brings up the topic of gas prices, America's wars in the middle east, and the economy of comfort. In light of recent events, i.e. the death of Osama Bin Laden, ever-increading gas prices, and the economic recession, I found the clip both insightful and somewhat prescient.
