When routing goes too far

I know that IP routing has a lot of redundancy built in, and it's a "network of networks" but this is taking things too far.

I live about 8 miles from where I work. Our datacenter is there, and we have a pretty big connection (dual T3s, plus T1 backup, maybe more). On a whim, I traced the route to our website.

c:\>tracert www.mony.com


Tracing route to www.mony.com [208.217.238.50]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

Now, really, why the hell must I go to one end of the state, then all the way to the other end, then back to the middle? It's no wonder MS Messenger can't stay connected tonight!
