Is this really news? Traffic is delayed, that's something, but sharing more about how there's nothing more to share is hardly "news". When I see something that generates a headline and hits my email I take note. If the subject turns out not to be substantive as promised by the "headline" excitement, I can get turned off to a service like this from the Patch quickly. Just thought you should know.
