I got caught in a couple of little traffic jams last week and I timed how long it took to get shut of them. One took four minutes, the other took six. These were on the freeway where I had been sailing along at 60 MPH and in a few seconds I was reduced to crawling along at 5 MPH.
Four minutes and six minutes are not very long, but at the time it seemed like for flipping ever.
Of all the problems we have in America, this is the absolute worst.
