Carmageddon In Los Angeles

Over the weekend, the I-405 Freeway ( AKA The San Diego Freeway to non-Angelenos)is going to be shut down between I-10 and US 101 in order to build a new northbound carpool lane. Since the 405 is the main artery between the San Fernando Valley the city's West side and points south like LAX airport, total chaos is expected.

In a spread out, car dependent city like Los Angeles, closing a major artery like the 405 is being treated like a major snowstorm or a tornado in other parts of the country. The 10-mile carpool lane is expected to cost a billion dollars, which means it's probably more like $1.5 or $1.75 billion once the real numbers get toted up.Don't even ask where the money's coming from.

Above, Hitler reacts to the closure in a dubbed version of that famous clip from 'Der Untergang'( NSFW language).

please helps me write more gooder!

Reform shuls have cancelled services because of this. Which is, halachically, sort of hilarious.
