Well this is just shocking. Can you believe some of the interstates and main roads might have heavy traffic? Hopefully someone writes this down for the history books. Usually the traffic flows in LA, like the salmon of Capistrano. Thanks a lot, Obama. Now it is going to take 1.5 hours to drive 4 blocks instead of the usual, convenient, 1.3 hours it normally takes.
Reporting that LA traffic might get bad is like reporting that the Jaguars might miss the playoffs this year. Michael Jackson might have diddled kids. I might bang a 6 in the next 3-4 months (this is an actual might, the joke has stopped. I’ll be happy with a 5.)
