No left turn

I feel like channelling Sartre to see if he has one more play in him to express the post-post-modernness I feel every time I try to get somewhere in Kansas City "on time."

Streets that are closed from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. for "signal upgrades" are far too annoying, especially when they're already my favorite secret detour and when the alternatives are blocked off elsewhere due to "economic development" and decades of oddball city planning.

It probably would not have been so disturbing to me if I had a car that could go more than 10mph on an incline or if I had not already been on three interstates by mistake that day.

I probably can't justifiably chime in here since I've been fighting similar traffic stuff here needlessly, living only 12 minutes from the office in the first place by foot but being too pooped and lazy to walk much this semester...

I feel for you anyway t. :)
