Beltway Traffic Jam

The morning commute was nearly 90 minutes, which is a lot for a 25 mile drive. A light rain sends people into a frenzy of grandma-itis in these parts, for reasons that continue to ellude me. Personally, I turn on the windshield wipers and the headlights and, um, drive.

The daily linkfest:

  • Steve Verdon explains why we’re not paid in Swiss cheese.
  • Steven Taylor reports on a Colombian-Canadian con job.
  • Dan Drezner examines the sex lives of TV watching teens.
  • Jay Tea explains why a president whose doctors love women is better than one who thinks his hair is funny.
  • Bill Hobbs finds Kerry’s Iraq stance confusing.
  • Herb Ely has another take on why the press disdains Republican presidents.
