Risky Friday

August 29th, 2008 by

Insider readers contemplating a Labor Day weekend retreat are probably performing the doomed calculus of traffic risk assessment: should I leave early, should I use contrarian logic and head into the middle of the maelstrom, or should I leave late? Given the price of gas, maybe I should just bag it and stay home. How do the risks -sitting in endless traffic – compare to the rewards: waking up in a nice place?
We cannot advise you on how to make these truly momentous decisions, but we can offer a few moments of entertaining and educational diversion: the latest edition of Cavalcade of Risk, hosted by John Leppard of Healthcare Manumission, is up. Lots of goodies, but no answers when it comes to traffic. As with so many decisions involving risk, you are pretty much on your own.
