Thanks President Bush!
President George W. Bush was in town recently. The reason I know is because our Commander-in-Chief decided to tie up busy Los Angeles rush hour traffic not just once, but twice. The first offense came during a busy Thursday evening commute with Bush shutting down a good portion of the Westside so that his motorcade could get to a Republican fat-cat fund-raiser in Beverly Hills. And if that wasn't bad enough, Bush pulled the same stunt during Friday morning commute just so he could get in a photo opp at the Reagan Library. Bush even managed to strand a bunch of elementary school busses, causing the kids to miss a peformance of the Wizard of Oz. So, for tying up major freeway and street routes during rush hour, all while inconveniencing thousands of commuters, we say, "Thank you President Bush!"
