As I recall, it was more like 30 people that died when the freighter knocked it down. There was a bus that went over. One guy in a pickup landed on the frieghter and lived. He just passed away a couple years ago.

Lived there 31 years, and hope I never have to move back. I hated the traffic.

You think Tampa traffic is bad....I lived in Los Angeles for 5 years! I was in Atlanta last week and went to leave the north west part of Atlanta to drive back home to Tampa at 4pm...it took me 2 hrs just to get across Atlanta!

I agree with ya, Mike... I lived in LA for a couple years and in Atlanta for nearly 20... LA may have more volume, but at least it is moving, or mostly moving. Atlanta takes the prize hands down for gridlock.
