I could try to tie in Miami by discussing how great the traffic is compared to, say, DC:
The usually punctual Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) had some choice words for District of Columbia leaders this week, when he blamed their policies for making his 11-mile commute to Capitol Hill last an hour and 40 minutes on Wednesday.
"We go through a city that will spend millions of dollars and enforce parking meters and get fines, and pay for speed cameras which mainly make out of town companies rich, and so on," Leahy said after arriving about 10 minutes late to a 9:30 a.m. hearing. "But they can't coordinate their street lights when their street lights are broken."
Leahy, while pouring himself water on the dais of the Senate Judiciary Committee, didn't say where he was driving from or what roads he took. But he observed that "the main thoroughfares have a green light that will go on for one second and go 10 minutes red."
