An open letter to the early birds:

Holy cow! There are hundreds of you. Do you not realize that if you parse yourselves out, the morning commute would be that much easier? Today, I had a scheduled meeting at the ungodly hour of 8am. I thought 20 mins to get to my meeting destination was appropriate. Boy was I wrong. Convoys of yellow school buses littered the streets. Kids and adults waddled cross the street without any consideration for the street lights. City buses docked themselves on the grid causing major gridlock. I finally got to my meeting destination and hobbled my way in. I had to endure the 3 hour meeting without my morning cup of Joe! Did I mention there was slide presentation too! Dim lights at an early morning meeting should be banned!
