Today I had to detour for a parade or a march or something equally lame, but I can understand why those are in the CBD, and at least they're infrequent. My real hatred is for the Run For The Kids crap, or the Run For Your Fat Ass To Stop Jiggling, or Run Because I'll Beat Your Ass If You Stop. WHY do they have to do these on major roads in high-traffic areas and screw up the commute of plenty of people? There are plenty of roads that can be blocked off without inconveniencing THOUSANDS of people. Am I the only person driven to madness by this?
