  1. Hah. I google mapped on my phone AND used sigalert.com before I left from west la to go to valencia the other day…got stuck in some massive traffic due to some accident or something that apparently happened AFTER i left. perfect timing >:(

    …or was it me misreading a yellow as just average traffic?, a small bit of yellow that turned into bloody red everywhere in less than an hour. 30 minute trip ended up taking almost 2 hours.

    bah.

  2. Nice list, Brian. I’ll add a bullet point directed people toward the LAFD’s list… which includes some help for Bustard and others using and promoting public transit…

  3. Hey David:

    This is off-topic, but remember that Dead Pool contest you started on Jan 2nd for tkts to see Siouxsie Sioux?

    It appears my pick #4 kicked the bucket yesterday – 27-Jan-2008: Mormon Church President Gordon Hinckley dies of natural causes in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    I couldn’t quite figure out how to pm you sir.
