The Swarm

Mix it up with The Bee's editorial board.

February 6, 2009
Furloughs = Smooth commute
With the rain this morning, I braced myself for another stop-and-go commute from Camino near Apple Hill. Thursday night it took an hour and a half to get home, an extra 20 minutes. Today, the cars were rolling swiftly at 8:15 a.m., heading toward Sacramento on Hwy. 50. I had to wonder if an absence of state workers on the highway made my path to The Bee clear. In the other direction, there was a lot more traffic, most noticeably cars bearing snowboards.

If you've been told to skip work, why not play? In these days of disruption, all those furloughed workers deserve a little fun.
