After years battling awful traffic on the Anacostia Freeway in suburban Maryland, librarian Gabriel Horchler has found a calm and enjoyable way to get to work at the Library of Congress...as a matter of fact, he calls his commute "the highlight of my day." He rides a bicycle to his where his 21-foot-long fiberglass rowing shell is stored in a boathouse, then completes his commute with another bicycle. The routine is only possible thanks to a flexible work schedule. The Library of Congress allows employees to arrive between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. -- a policy intended in part to help workers cope with the area's notorious traffic.CNN has the story.
