It's probably not the most unexpected piece of news that tolling on the 520 floating bridge has cut deeply into the number of drivers crossing Lake Washington on it -- most of them heading to the I-90 bridge. Commenter Charybdis, though, offers her own grouchy perspective in our Comment of the Day:
Predictable. Washington liberals couldn't predict the behavior of a maze rat smelling out a piece of cheese, let alone how this toll would affect driving behavior. My 11 year-old figured it out right away when I told him about it, though. So when can we expect the House Bill to tax the rest of us to pay for the shortfall?
