They say that the polar ice caps are melting at about a rate of 3 inches per year, which is about the same rate that tectonic plates are dragging California into the Pacific, but did you know that every year, New York is getting 2-3 hours further away from DC? That's right! It's a fact! Science doesn't lie!
Some 10 years ago, a drive from DC to NY on an otherwise unspectacular Friday afternoon would take approximately 4 hours. Today, studies show, it will likely take you an average of 8 hours. Science might not lie, but it's address book could use a little updating; seems I missed the memo regarding the official dissolution of the "pass on the left" rule of the road.
