Coming up on my Monday KCRW commentary: why presidential fundraising visits like today's are mainly traffic events for Angelenos, and why they also tend to create the worst jams. (Though never "gridlock," as the L.A. Times hyperbolically calls today's apparently very orderly timed shutdown of streets.) My piece airs on the radio at 6:44 p.m., and is also online at KCRW.com.
