Those of you who beat the system by enjoying a reverse commute to the East Bay may be have gotten a taste of what garden-variety commuters deal with. News reports abound of some manner of wire dangling within the Treasure Island tunnel on the bridge's lower deck.

While earlier reports described the wire as electrical (a "live wire"), California Highway Patrol officials have since confirmed that it is not -- though the makers of the doomed show Trauma are certainly slapping their palms on the table that they never conjured up this scenario.

In any event, the right lane appears to still be closed. But, on the plus side, thousands of reverse commuters can now make horrible puns with their co-workers about how they saw The Wire on the bridge.
