21 August 2013: Traffic Jam

Watching the perennial traffic jam at the Circle interchange always makes me feel very clever for taking the L instead of driving. For those of my readers who aren't familiar with Chicago, we have a charming tradition here of naming expressways after people. Anywhere else, these cars would be going from I-290 to I-90/94; but any Chicagoan would tell you that these cars are on the Ike, heading for either the Dan Ryan or the Kennedy. Some of them may have started their journey at the Jane Addams.
