Decided to take the highway instead of traveling through the streets and it cost me 40 minutes. Felt bad for Alison who could have walked three miles by the time I arrived. It was frustrating as I was only about a fourth of a mile away and you could see the situation devolve. This passenger in the car in front of me kept getting out and dropping "F" bombs. The lanes collapsed and, as I finally made progress toward exit, a cop on a horse arrived but he definitely needed back-up.
Managed to shake off my frustration and we walked the 6.29 trail and we have the aching feet to prove it.
The traffic jam definitely made me have sympathy for people who commute long distances...

Tried to find the O: The Oprah Magazine article only to find that Jones battled pancreatic cancer...
Was on Twitter last night and came across this compelling photo and it reminds me of those Coretta Scott-King, Myrlie Evers, Betty Shabazz funeral photos.
