At the risk of sounding nit-picky, Route 66 runs from Chicago to Los Angeles.  It's where you get your kicks and shiat.

It's Me Bender: Yeah, the problem is that they are widening 66 between exits 40 and 43, and the rushour traffic doesn't get really awful until a little further east, where it's already 4 lanes.

Yeah, they need to add four extra lanes inside the Beltway and build a new friggin' bridge to get in the city.

This reminds me of a cool story bro:

I was living in Connecticut when Nemo hit. There was four feet of snow covering the entire state, and CT has something like 25000 miles of road.

People were biatching and moaning how all of it wasn't fully plowed within 24 hours. Then they biatched the the towns and state were focusing on getting major highways and roads cleared first so that emergency vehicles couldd get around instead of their little side streets and suburb roads.

They biatched and moaned that there weren't enough plows to get it all done that quickly and that plot crews stopped for the night once the blizzard had reduced visibility to mere inches.

Then months later when the state and towns released how much it had cost to clear the roads, they biatched about that too.

Lesson: People are whiny, impatient, entitled, cheap idiots.
