Drivin' Miss Crazy

Indeed, those who claim the South fought the Civil War to keep Atlanta from happening may never have considered the possibilities of Dallas.
--Paul Greenberg

If that's so, then may the South rise again. Only yesterday Hon. Daughter #1, planning a trip into the NYC of the Old South, paused briefly to wail, "But I'm too young to die!"
"Shoot," I said. "And you've spent the last three years driving all over Charlotte?"
But the Dirty South is in a class by itself.

A favorite of haiku of mine, from the book Honku: The Zen Antidote to Road Rage:

Atlanta traffic:
Easy to see why Sherman
Burned this city down.

Update, some 12 hours later: It just hit me. Hotlanta's under water, and I sat down this morning and wrote a blog post complaining about the traffic?

Obviously, it's time for a sabbatical.
