06/26/07 1pm Commuting

How much time do you spend getting to and from work every day?  What else would you like to be doing with that time, however much it may be? Our show this hour will be focused on commuting, so if you need to vent, now's your chance.  Seems like commuting is something about which just about everyone has something to say, whether it be bragging about only having to walk two blocks to work or bragging about suffering through a two hour drive on congested highways.  We hope you'll share your stories with us, both here and on the air. A lot has been written about commuting.  Here's a great article from The New Yorker a few issues back, There and Back Again: The Soul of the Commuter, by Nick Paumgarten.  It uses commuting as a medium for looking at some fundamental questions about our ability as humans to decide what is best for ourselves and what we do with our time. -Justin
