I live in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, and yet I know that LA's 405 freeway is closed this weekend (aka Carmageddon) between the Santa Monica and Ventura freeways.
I first heard this because of a California podcast I listen to (they talked about how Ashton Kutcher was asked/paid to tweet about it) and tonight, I was reminded thanks to the twitter feed of the CBC. Is this road closure of international importance? No, obviously not. The few Canadians who would venture to LA in July would not be using this highway anyway (although they would experience significant spill-over traffic on their way to NBC-Universal near the 101-134 interchange).
No, this is the international news importance that Kai Nagata warned us about: Erik Estrada made a commercial!
Oh, and in case you are wondering, they have to demolish the bridge in the backround of Erik Estrada, and close the highway, because they are WIDENING THE HIGHWAY! Hello! Earth to California. You are in a budget crisis AND global warming is YOUR FAULT!
Sometimes, I guess, 12 lanes are just not enough.
