Let Congress drive the plows?

By June Kilpatrick, Haymarket

I no longer have to commute, but vivid memories of hazardous journeys home in snow and ice drew me to your Feb. 7 editorial, "Lessons from snow gridlock." Your conclusion gave me a good chuckle. "If the local jurisdictions can't see that it is in their best interests to have an authority that really is in charge when an emergency occurs, then perhaps it's time for Congress to get involved."

Sure, let's put Congress in charge of that, too. Snow and ice would melt and daffodils would surely bloom and flourish before that august body could ever reach a decision.

I think that the expectation is that the hot air will simply melt the snow and ice ;^)
