BOSTON DOT COM has an article on an effort to make Boston more bicycle friendly

URBAN Dictionary Dot Com also defines MASSHOLE

one of the issues with driving in Washington DC has to do with the transient nature of its population
DC is not only very International but DC is also very diverse with its national representation
which means that people from all over the country and all over the world are driving around the city trying to apply the driving habits of their home town to the streets of DC

it just does not work!

I lived in NH for 5 yrs. It was a love-hate relationship w/ MA. We love to take your $$$, but we hate having you here. My favorite NH bumper sticker was: "Welcome to NH, Now Leave".
