Relative Perspective

The mayor is concerned that wait times at the international bridges can be improved to better facilitate commerce and tourism, but customs officials say that their wait times are the lowest in the state of Texas, if not the nation.  In fact, in order to be on the same level with other crossings, and to carry out thorough inspections, wait times will be increased by three minutes this coming year, and then 1.5 minutes each year after that for four years.

When the mayor implored federal officials about the drawbacks of longer wait times, the agents repeated, "we have some of the lowest wait times in the state of Texas."  Shortly after that, the mayor's head exploded.
