It's worse than secondhand. C'mon, Mike. Show some geography lessons.
No one commutes across the DFW Metroplex across the airport. It's
bigger than Manhattan because it's in the middle of nowhere!

TRAVELMAN notes that this refers to the *Dulles* toll road in
Northern Virginia. The inner lanes are toll-free. As the BurmaShave
haiku quoth by the roadside:

The Road You're On
Is For Airport Users
Don't Risk A Ticket
 From Our Police Cruisers

Taking the road to Dulles and a U-turn back onto the tollway to pay
the "short edge" is not kosher.
