Hello from Paris!

Stuck in traffic on the Peripherique, and it's only 7 a.m. I now have a much better sense for why French bureaucrats are so surly. If this were my commute, I'd make it my life's work to make others miserable.

And here I thought L.A. traffic was bad. This is not only congested, but chaotic too.

Sorry, Opel, looks like I'm going to miss your 7:30 press conference. You think the show organizers put them first on purpose?
