Today's Read: Metro looking for support, acceptance

Public dialogue starts: Metro riders took advantage of a public forum Monday night to vent to General Manager John B. Catoe Jr. and Metro board Chairman Jim Graham about unreliable buses and trains and even poorer customer service. (Lena H. Sun)

There's another one of these Wednesday evening in Northern Virginia, at George Mason High School, 7124 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church. The program, sponsored by the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission, will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Wish I would have heard about this beforehand, instead of the day after Dr.

Anarcho - the good Dr. posted about this last Thursday 10/15. What do you expect, for him to personally call you at home so you are aware?

From Dr. Gridlock: Thanks, TerpsGirl. When I'm advising travelers about construction or delays or transpo meetings they might want to go to, I never know how much is too much. On the one hand, I could fill the blog with reminders about what's happening each day. And on the other hand, I don't expect people to see -- let alone memorize -- what I've already said.

So I keep looking for the right balance and would appreciate feedback from the regulars on what they'd like to see.
