    He wouldn't have made it past Joplin if he had gone through on Sunday. It's still bitter-cold here, but at least (for now) it stopped snowing.

    Shunpiking will add even more miles, too, and doesn't necessarily completely alleviate the tolls. I was thinking I-135 at Wichita north to Salina, then east on I-70, but part of I-70 in Kansas is...
