Dallas, I.B.M. Feels Your Commuter Pain

Courtesy I.B.M.

Sure, like you need a chart to tell you how much you hate driving these days.

In a survey released this a.m., I.B.M. ranks 10 cities' "Commuter Pain." And Dallas has plenty of it. As in: We're among the top cities in the U.S. and A. in which folks are looking for "new options to driving" (transporter technology, perhaps?), feeling "increased stress" (from not having transporter technology, maybe?) and getting generally put out by the price of gas and other roadway nonsense and bullshit. Which is why Dallas ranks fourth on the put-upon list, behind only Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami. Again, where's my transporter? No, wait -- motorcycles. --Robert Wilonsky
