The Vice President is in town for a couple of days. Since his arrival, traffic in the city has been downright horrible. Interstate was shut down completely yesterday right at the beginning of the evening rush hour. It took me twice as long to get home and needless to say, I was not a happy camper. While I understand the need for his security, I still don't understand the need for such pomp and circumstance. It's not like assassains peruse the interstates on a daily basis waiting to do a drive-by on an elected official. I honestly think that the Secret Service can get the prez or vice prez around town without anyone truly noticing. Do you REALLY pay attention to the drivers next to you?? Other than catch an occasional nose picker or someone doing Donna Summer or Barry Manilow impressions, do you really SEE the people next to you? Just needed to get this off my chest. Thanks.
