Yesterday I was in Riverside, CA trying to get on the highway and the on ramp was blocked by a large moving truck (didn't see the CHP unit in front of it). So as I'm sitting there locked in traffic, I begin seeing motor officer after motor officer on the freeway.
This goes on for several minutes. The some CHP units, then 2 black limos, obviously armored, then Secret Service SUV's and more CHP cars. Overpass bridges all had a police unit parked on them, all ramps closed.
For a west coast boy, it was well worth the wait to see Cheney's trip. We don't see that much out this way.
