I calculate a speed of 2.9 bug-miles per second or 10492 bug-miles per  
hour:  nearly orbital.  There could be adjustments for bug severity,  
time zone difference, location of servers...

P.S.:  The first time I composed this message, my Mac had a kernel  
panic.  No, it wasn't PLT.  According to the crash report, that blame  
belongs to com.symantec.kext.internetSecurity.  Every time my Mac has  
crashed--several times per year--it's been traced to Symantec.

(define bos-slc-nm 1823.5)
(define bos-slc-sm (* bos-slc-nm (/ 6076 5280)))
(define (bug-miles-per-t bugs miles t)
   (/ (* bugs miles) t))

(bug-miles-per-t 1 bos-slc-sm (* 12 60))
;=> 2.9144533880471384

(bug-miles-per-t 1 bos-slc-sm 12/60)
;=> 10492.032196969698
