Say a tearful goodbye to the south end of this behemouth next Saturday

Like many of my co-workers who work in the shadow of the thing, I've been in an agony of logistical contortions of late, getting ready for ViaPocolypse 2011. But it never occurred to me until today that the whole thing could be a big party.

To wit, this item from the DOT website: Read more »
