With the prospect of a Nationals/Orioles World Series looming, I am reminded of the last similar series in 1989 between the Giants and the A’s. Almost everyone left work early which saved hundreds of lives – because the Earthquake hit right at rush hour and collapsed the Nimitz Freeway. If not for the World Series, the freeway would have been packed with commuters.
I live between Baltimore and Washington. Who should I support, and which freeways should I avoid?
