Crappiest Commute Contest
Roger in accounting shows up at the office every day before 7:00 am and leaves the office at 3:00. This is because Roger works in Culver City, but lives in Riverside and these are the most effective hours for him to try to alleviate some of his crappy ass commute.
Roger is not alone. And now, with the help of the am 640 radio duo, John & Ken and the Reason Foundation, he has the chance to be featured on a web documentary hosted by Drew Carey and have one commute free day by being chauffeured to and from work via helicopter!!
