"I hadn’t intended to write anything on 9/11; but riding home from downtown D.C. the very night after Forbes issued a call for retrospectives, I crossed the Roosevelt Bridge onto Interstate 66, only to immediately confront a traffic backup with no exit possible for several miles. So I chicken-walked my motorcycle the entire way. It reminded me of how Washington went pear-shaped after August’s mild east-coast earthquake, which in turn reminded me of how the city ground to a total standstill during a January snow dusting, trapping thousand in their cars including my girlfriend for nine hours, many even longer."
