Quick Overview

The title Interstate Holiday came to me after driving down the New York State Thruway in heavy traffic. Just a couple months before, in spring 2008, the presidential primary filled the airwaves with debates over a summer ?gas tax holiday?. Forget the politics?the phrase sounded so festive! More generally, what would a celebration of the open road (or of traffic congestion) sound like? This piece is a 5 minute trip that rarely takes its foot off the gas.
