The Los Angeles Times collected some letters to the editor on “the 405 blues.” Read them here. One reader calls for a rail line; another writes:
In 1988 I was diagnosed with two blocked arteries. While I was waiting for surgery, my doctor asked me not go to work because of stress. I told the doctor that as a manager, I could delegate and minimize the stress.
His response: “I’m not worried about stress on your job; I’m concerned about you driving the 405.”
