Idles very high at startup

(1990 Buick LeSabre)
in Bay City, MI on January 23, 2012
after starting can hit speeds of 30-40 mph without touching gas pedal, when I get home (about a mile and half drive) put in park engine reeving really high. if I let car warm up for 10 minutes usually have no problem
