Re: “There were reasons for long backup” (TNT, 12-18).
Whoever made the decision to keep Interstate 5 lanes closed for so long should be fired. Rules they said had to be enforced was a lame excuse.
Thousands of cars and trucks sitting for hours could have been prevented. An emergency like this should have allowed rules to be moderated rather than the disregard for the inconvenience it was causing. No wonder people were furious.
