Blogging fronm home could be good for your health, 'cause that commute's a killer. And now "Forbes" had done some figurin' to find out which of the 25 largest metro areas in America have the deadliest commute.

The study compared three major factors to find which urban commutes by car are the worst: paticulate air pollution rates, time spent in commuting by car, and rates of car acident fatalities.

And the winners are: Riverside is worst of the 25 largest cities, then Atlanta, Los Angeles, Houston and Washington D.C. Think those folks in Congress and the White House will pay attention? It doesn't help their health to have a chaffeur-driven limo, the passenger gets the same deadly exposure to pollution and collisions. Sure looks like working from home's a healthy idea.
