Mike A. suggested this very interesting piece: Planning traffic routing in no-notice disasters. The article begins: “Spontaneous evacuations of New York City and Washington, D.C. following the 9/11 terrorist attacks demonstrated that U.S. cities are not prepared to manage the sudden influx of traffic into roads and highways following a no-notice disaster.”

News headline: San Francisco to rename street after Pelosi. JWR’s Comments: Go ahead and call me “stodgy”, but I think they’d be safer waiting until she expires–or at least until after she leaves public office–to go naming streets or battleships in her honor. After all, you never know when a sitting senator or congresscritter might come down with a bad case of Tom DeLay-John Ensign-David Vitter-Gary Condit-Duke Cunningham-John Edwards-Chris Dodd-Eric Massa-Fred Richmond-Gary Hart-Charlie Rangel-Albert Bustamante-Mark Foley-William J. Jefferson-Dan Rostenkowski-Wayne Hays-Gerry Studds-Mario Biaggi-James Traficant-Buz Lukens-David Wu-Mark Souder-Anthony Weiner Syndrome and hence be forced to resign in disgrace. So this could be a bad idea, and difficult to reverse. (Just ask the folks in Milltown, New Jersey, that still drive down Pétain Street, or anyone who lives on Ernst Thälmann Strasse in Dresden.) Oh well, at least the San Francisco pinko politicos don’t plan to re-name the entire city Pelosigrad. (At least not yet.) By the way, I still haven’t forgiven them for renaming Army Street after a far-left labor leader.
