Well, My Career is More Like an Autobahn

WELL, MY CAREER IS MORE LIKE AN AUTOBAHN….Denis Boyles in NRO today:

I’m eat up in metaphors. They’re everywhere, part of a life built on a solid bedrock of clutter and confusion. For example, consider a map of I-70. It starts, with great promise, in a parking lot at the Social Security Administration in Baltimore, runs for many, many miles ? then ends, without fanfare, near a tiny hamlet in a remote corner of Utah called Sulphurdale, a destination I have yet to reach. I-70 is my “career.”

Huh? Can anyone tell me WTF this means? “I-70 is my ‘career'”?

(The rest of the essay ? strangely enough ? is just a standard riff about why we should ignore elitist Europeans and their terrorist appeasing ways. Pay it no mind.)
