Metro Alert: McPherson Reopens After Smoke Report

Update, 12:46 p.m.: McPherson Square station has reopened after a cable burned out in an ancillary room, releasing smoke into the station, officials said. Trains are single-tracking on the Orange and Blue lines between Farragut West and Federal Triangle stations.

Original post, 12:00 p.m. Metro closed down McPherson Square station on the Blue and Orange line at 11:48 a.m. because of a report of smoke coming out of an auxillary room at the station, officials said. Trains are turning back at Farragut West and Federal Triangle, and shuttle buses have been requested. Delays are expected in both directions. Fire and emergency officials arrived on the scene just before noon. Blue and Orange line trains are also not stopping at Metro Center.

Now that "ImpeachObama" has stolen my line , here is my retort.

Was he inahling when he was toking it up?

Will he get the Zig-Zag endorsement for a new line of cigarette papers, "Rosetta Stoner"?

Will he be the next star in a Mission Impossible movie where the tape plays- Mr. Phelps, you have accepted an assignment where you were supposed to hold yourself at the same level as other US Olympians, Jim Thorpe, Bob Mathias, Glenn Cunningham and Mark Spitz. You failed and your endorsement deals just went up in smoke. By the way, your agent just called and is ready to commit Hara-Kiri.
