Headaches on the horizon

Showers will continue into the night, says the Capital Weather Gang. It's unclear how much road work will get done Monday night because of the weather, but Metrorail doesn't have that problem.

Beltway HOT lanes
If the weather permits, here's what's supposed to happen between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m.
-- Two lanes of Leesburg Pike (Route 7) east are scheduled to close for utility work from the Dulles Toll Road (Route 267) to Spring Hill Road.
-- A single left lane of Dolley Madison Boulevard (Route 123) north between Old Meadow Road and Anderson Road is scheduled to close for utility work.
-- A single lane of Leesburg Pike (Route 7) west between Spring Hill Road and Westpark Drive is scheduled to close for utility work.

Beltway in Prince George's
You may notice this project getting underway: The Maryland State Highway Administration is scheduled to begin resurfacing 4.6 miles of the Beltway's outer loop between Branch Avenue and D'Arcy Road. The project also includes a half-mile of Pennsylvania Avenue between the Beltway and Old Marlboro Pike/Westphalia Road and the exit ramp from Forestville Road to the outer loop.

Watch for single lane closings on weeknights from 8 to 9 p.m. and double lane closings Sunday through Thursday nights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Metro night delays
Red Line: Add at least 20 minutes to normal travel time between Grosvenor and Medical Center from 10 p.m. through the midnight closing Monday through Thursday. Add at least half an hour between Rhode Island Avenue and Fort Totten from 10 p.m. through closing Monday through Thursday.

Blue and Yellow lines: Add at least half an hour between Braddock Road and Pentagon City from 11 p.m. through closing Sunday through Thursday.

Green Line: Add at least 20 minutes between Greenbelt and College Park from 8 p.m. to closing Monday through Thursday.

Looks to me like BP can't control the flow of it's profits

Get it ? Flow ?

It is a rather interesting taunting DARK comedy here if you ask me.

Forgive me for being crude ?

ok ok - I'll stop - I was in the kitchen and I had this thought "Looks to me like BP can't control the flow of their profits" and I thought - hmm, do I mean the oil leaking ? or the money that I was computing from the 2,000 barrels a day they say they are saving from this siphon.

I actually was hoping to compute the actual release amount that BP has not released by taking what they SAY they are 'barging' off as I call it- and well ? If BP barges off 10,000 barrels a day? I'd know at LEAST 10k a day was flowing - and more from the excess. Odd it's presented front end of the horse here - calling it 40% - at 2,000 barrels a day of the 'estimated' 5,000. Why proportionate off an estimate and present the 40% as anything meaningful other than that which could BE derived from an estimate - and enter one estimate into this theater, enter all, and I've seen WIDE variance on potential 'estimate' rates of leakage per day.

I do say- post bush - I AM addicted to this story.

Indeed, near 100 years plus now, I've observed at age 42, oil is 'pushed' rather than pulled I'd argue.

I disagree with Bush's declaration or justification for Iraq (I did observe BP, Sunoco, Conoco and Exxon all went back online in July 2008 in the Iraqi oil fields, for the FIRST time since Saddam had taken them offline, remember July 2008 everyone ? oil went to $150- I STILL argue Lehman had a hand in futures manipulation, it is VERY sketchy when you see the CEO of Lehman testify that Paulson came back over the weekend and said - ONLY you will fail, when Lehman ran 90% - TOP DEALER in WORLD government bonds - STRANGE vertebrae, er, KEYSTONE to stress there by letting it fail IF you ask me- Go ask Germany ! a new song by Alanis Morriset ? post Thank you India ? She should have called it Thank you China) by saying America is addicted to oil.

No, oil has been pushed.

I do say - if I'm not mistaken ? looking back at all those massive billion dollar tax subsidies for the oil companies to DRILL in the Gulf ?

I'd say America DID pay for this -

My favorite BP story is regarding how to play ball in the Middle East.

That is when BP said to Ghadaffi - we want to come in - Ghadaffi said - pay up front, come right on in, and he rolled over.

Fine robes I do say - might have helped Bush's role.

I actually could see Obama in robes easier than Bush - Ghadaffi style at least.

nice solid colors.

Oh well- BP just paid up front, I think it was 9 billion iirc, it's been SOME time.

Most of Saddam's family found homage with Ghadaffi I do recall - and bringing 12 figures with them.

I can only question what group of people or families have 13 figures to command, or my god - single digit trillions at 14 digit - I can't imagine that kind of power - perhaps at a corporate level - some entity exists such that it can tip the scales for all other intercommerce interchange.
