I should perhaps pay attention to what is going on in the world around me when I make plans. Saturday we had a plan to meet friends at our favorite restaurant for a late lunch. We left the house in plenty of time to make it up there. What I did not think about was that it is a weekend in June, and we would have to drive through the University District.
Apparently, it was graduation, and Cabinet member Secretary Sebelius was speaking. Traffic was terrible. “Luckily” our friends also had bad traffic, so they were running late as well.
