Who’s complaining about traffic?

This is in response to Jeff Ackerman’s column on April 12. Is it necessary to continually insult the citizens of Grass Valley that weren’t born here? What is a flatlander anyway? I’m a native of San Francisco and there is nothing flat about that city. From what I’ve seen, the only people that complain about traffic are those that grew up here and are undoubtedly more comfortable with cattle running down the street. This is 2005, not 1860 – progress happens. Deal with it or take your goats and move deeper into the woods. By the way, anyone that tries to drive to San Francisco at 5 p.m. is certainly a country bumpkin. I go there frequently, but know when to do it and never get stuck in traffic.
