We all have things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
The above photo, taken by a news helicopter last night, and the accompanying news story about the worst holiday traffic jam in SoCal history made me realize that I have three more things to be thankful for than I was even aware of:
1. I’m not stuck in a car on “the 405,” breathing exhaust fumes and trapped forever in angry, soul-deadening gridlock.
2. I don’t have to drive to some faraway location this Thanksgiving. In fact, I may not need to drive at all.
3. I don’t live in southern California. Sorry, all you people out in LA and thereabouts: I just don’t see how you can stand the traffic. What passes for a traffic jam in Columbus would be viewed as a pretty good day on Golden State freeways.
