I got stuck in traffic for about 15 minutes on the last stretch of Oregon Expressway, leading up to El Camino. I'd noticed, coming down, that there were cops starting to block off some of the roads on the opposite side, and I saw a bunch of flashing lights. At first, I was thinking there was some kind of really bad accident in the intersection, but as it was dawning on me that this didn't seem right (no noticable mangled wrecks, no ambulances), the Presidential limo came whizzing by on the other side. I'd heard Bush was in town today, for a
pack of lies speech at Cisco, but it hadn't occurred to me that he'd be stopping by to clog traffic at my house.
