BAD COMMUTES...:

Are L.A. freeways the roads less-traveled?: A sampling of residents, traffic reporters and technical data indicates that as gas prices climbed and the economy faltered, there were notable traffic decreases on some freeways. (Steve Hymon and Jia-Rui Chong, 5/11/08, Los Angeles Times)

[A] sampling of residents, traffic reporters and technical data indicates that as gasoline prices have climbed and the economy has faltered, weekday congestion has softened in some areas over the last month. There are notable decreases in commuting times on some well-traveled freeways.

Other drivers say their commutes are still bad, but that the roads are more lightly traveled at midday and evenings -- the times of day that people make discretionary trips.


...are the inalienable right of the selfish.

Bad service at McDonalds is a sign of a good economy. I root for economic downturns to make my wait shorter, but I guess I'm selfish.

You know OJ, you could just move to France and enjoy one of the finest passenger train services in the world.

(Sits back and waits for OJ's head to explode...)
