Incident on I-85
26 Aug 2006

A few minutes beforehand you’re watching a woman making tortillas in front of a Food Mart, then you’re seated in stand-still traffic for an hour and a half while someone’s tragedy is playing out ahead, which is called an incident in the traffic news, marked with a little incident icon on traffic report webpages until the last of the glass is swept away, the traffic begins running again, and the “incident” warning swept away as well. Meanwhile, twilight falls, the woman making tortillas cuts off her hot plate, packs up her wares and goes home.
