I’m driving in this morning and the traffic report talks about backups on I-5.

I-5? Yep. Listening to the traffic reports for Los Angeles on XM. I’m zipping along 221 just outside Willis at 60-65 (OK, 50-55 if any State Troopers are reading) and laughing out loud at reports of hour-long backups on I-5 near LA.

Then I switch over to the XM channel for traffic in the DC metro area (our old haunt). Sure ’nuff. I-395 is clogged by an accident and I-66 is bumper to bumper west of the Beltway.

I’m laughing. Bet they ain’t.
