Lines, Stress at Farragut West

Post reporters are still seeing long lines stretching outside the Farragut West Metro station, which serves the Blue and Orange Lines, as recently as 5:15 p.m.

Nelson Hernandez said at least 300 were gathered outside the station, where a police officer stood on top of the escalator bannister telling people -- some who appear to be growing impatient -- there was no space for them inside.

"Excuse me!" one woman shouted, temporarily silencing the crowd. "What is the problem?"

"There's no room," the officer said.

Uh...what did they expect? Did they not see the hundreds of thousands of people next to them earlier?

HA HA HA, REALLY! WHAT DID THEY EXPECT, HUH? Meanwhile, up here in NW DC things are still silent as a tomb! And by the way, beautiful sunset out there! -which those of us who were smart and stayed at home can watch, along with the parade, all warm and cosy with a nice cocktail in hand!
