Traffic Tuesday

I’m afraid it’s light posting today, Jello Heads. My drive to work took 2 hours this morning because apparently, no one in the Mid Atlantic region knows how to drive in the rain….

I hope to put some things up at lunch time if I can catch up at work, but for the time being I want to share with you a quote from the always brilliant David Sedaris on those “undecided voters”:

“I look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

  1. Did you want us to have Joe call 911 for you? When I lived in Seattle, I never understood why no one could drive when the sun came out.
    Sedaris always puts issues in perspective. Too bad more individuals don’t know of him…probably independents.

  2. I had read that Sedaris peace- I’ll have the chicken please. Snort.

    Sorry about the traffic. Why didn’t you just call 911 yourself? Share the spotlight with Joe McCain?

  3. Good Morning America had a couple “undecided” voters on it this morning. One said she was waiting just in case there was a last minute revelation of some sort. I don’t know — maybe she’s still hoping one of the candidates will be caught with the proverbial dead woman or live boy in the bed so she won’t be forced to do any actual thinking for herself.
