They're apparently considering raising the speed limit on Hiawatha:
It's about freakin' time. The road was designed to carry traffic going faster than 35 and none of the traffic gets near 35, especially on the sections above 26th and below 46th. The strib has a poll up now. Raising the speed limit is way in the lead.
I saw a woman on the news at the gym yesterday talking about drunk driving. I tend to agree with such people, but this woman was going on and on about how drunk drivers are actually terrorists. I think that made her sound like a real idiot and probably did more damage to her cause than good. I don't know if it was this woman or not.
I stupidly forgot my iPod at work yesterday so the gym was less fun than usual. It's much harder to pretend you aren't there when you don't have anything to drown out the grunting and the sweating and the dropping of heavy things.
