Traffic tonight? Not good *

President Bush has an evening fundraiser in Brentwood, there are accidents on both sides of the 405 near Wilshire, and the northbound Pasadena is backed up near I-5. Luckily, Bush is moving by helicopter and departs the area about 7 pm. Good luck out there.

* Winner's perk: The president soared above a locked-down Brentwood while the man he beat in 2004, John Kerry, and Teresa Heinz Kerry got stuck in the traffic snarl and arrived twenty minutes late for a talk and book signing on the jam-packed patio at Dutton's. Boos and hisses when Bush was mentioned were probably due partly to the partisan crowd and partly to the traffic mess.
