Why I Love The Internet!

Because it fosters deep, meaningful exchanges between total strangers. For example, I just went to Statesman.com to check on the status of I-35 South. I'm teaching in Round Rock, need to get back to Austin in a timely fashion, and I-35 South has been closed for hours due to a wreck-- a tractor trailer caught on fire. While looking for updates, I found the following exchange of helpful comments from readers:

Wait, actually, the spelling error guy was funny (possibly). That picture's been going around the internet for months.
