Can We Just Outlaw Monday????

Ok, I should have checked my WeirdShitOMeter when I got a phone call this morning from mononeuron who misread his cellphone, and presumed that rather than the call having been missed last night at 20:00, that it was at 08:00 this morning, and that for reasons I am just starting to get my head around, there is this Wee Problem with the MacArthur Maze; eg
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency Sunday and authorized free public transit rides today to help commuters deal with the massive gridlock expected from the collapse of a segment of the MacArthur Maze.

One of the Bay Area's most-traveled sections of freeway collapsed in a gasoline-fueled fireball near the Bay Bridge early Sunday, ensuring a commuter snarl and repairs that could take months.

The state of emergency declaration will speed state dollars to repair the blasted section of freeway.

Thank GOD it is not like we are in turkey, where their religious wingNuts are opting for:
Amid a sea of Turkish flags, nearly three-quarters of a million people poured into the streets of Istanbul on Sunday to demand that parliament choose a president with no Islamist ties.

But the Islamist-rooted ruling party insisted that it would push ahead with the candidacy of Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul, chosen last week as its standard-bearer in parliamentary voting scheduled to take place in the coming two weeks.

Secular opposition parties have mounted a legal challenge to a first-round vote last week by lawmakers, and Turkey's powerful military, which considers itself the guardian of this overwhelmingly Muslim country's secular system, issued a sharply worded warning Friday night against the accession of any leader who does not fully support secular principles.

A gas tanker truck crashed on a heavily used overpass in the San Francisco Bay Area early Sunday morning, causing a large fire, which subsequently melted a 250-yard section of a major expressway just off of the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge. As the 8,600 gallons of fuel burned, the heat of the fire melted the upper deck of the overpass, causing it to fall on the lower level.

AT least three people were killed, including the assailant, and shoppers fled when a gunman opened fire yesterday at a shopping mall in Kansas City, Missouri.

which is clearly more effective than the most recent San Antonio Womyn Clinic Bomber who soooo failed to get where he wanted to be.... And yet
A 27-year-old man has been arrested on three charges related to a pipe-bomb that was found near an Austin, Texas abortion clinic last week. The Austin Police Department has announced that Paul Ross Evans has been charged with use of weapons of mass destruction, manufacture of explosive material, and violating the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, the Associated Press reports.
...
Erik Vasys, a spokesperson for the FBI's San Antonio office, told the AP that authorities are still trying to determine if Evans had strong anti-abortion views.

Hum....

What if the problem is whether or not folks can cope with the modern era? In this, I include the west, where we do have the concerns about whether we should just Abandon The Modern Era and return to the time BEFORE the Protestant Reformation....

Hum....

Or maybe we should just outlaw Mondays, and that would clearly prevent folks from having an unhappy day as they catch up with what is going wrong with the world...
