That's fairly accurate. I'll be back there in a day or two for my
once-a-year-visit, and I know that's pretty much the picture. But Frank,
you might also say, "If I drove at only 60 MPH instead of 120, it would
take twice as long..." That doesn't make 120 MPH a good idea, does it?
Hmmm, well come to think of it...;^)

 Left lane to pass is a great idea,

Reality may indeed dictate otherwise in high density California areas
because of the way the CA drivers are permitted to drive, but it escapes me
what the _inherent_ problem is in having adherence to a "left lane to pass"
rule. You imply that a "ton of commuters" changes the equation. How so?
Are comuters untrainable? Uncontrollable? More in tune with cupholder
technique than driving technique? All of the above?
