Buffalo News Watch

We hope no one missed the late-breaking news story on the front page of today’s Buffalo News telling us that area drivers needn’t worry about traffic jams. We really don’t have any traffic jams. But to certify that this was a solid investigative report, the News consulted with an assistant professor of engineering from the University at Buffalo, Ms. Qian Wang. Professor Wang confirmed that residents have no need to worry. “The traffic conditions here really aren’t that bad,” she told the News.
That’s such a relief because we really weren’t sure if there were no traffic jams or if we just didn’t know what a traffic jam was.
The News did manage to dig up an old photo from 2003 to run with their potential Pulitzer Prize winning research that showed a sort of half-assed busy “rush hour” on Cayuga Road in WIlliamsville. We’re so happy that we decided to keep our subscription to the Buffalo News, even after they raised their cover price to 75¢. Where would we be without the valuable information they provide?
