Bagels and (traffic) jam

   When the Beatles first rose to popularity, the band's name would generally evoke the image of an insect. Five years later, if someone said, "I think I just stepped on a beetle," the response might be, "I hope it wasn't Ringo."

   Something similar happened to Tim Horton, once bringing to mind a legendary hockey player, now a coffee and doughnut shop.

   Around here, the name also evokes images of morning traffic jams, which is the focus of my column in today's paper.

   I mentioned a couple of the spots that seem to draw the most attention. Where are some of the others? And are you satisfied with the company's response - bigger parcels of land, more space for longer lines of vehicles - or should local governments be doing more?
