A reminder from Dr. Gridlock that members of the public will have their first opportunity to discuss Metro's new bag inspection policy -- launched last month -- at a special meeting of the Metro Riders' Advisory Council tonight.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. on the lobby level of Metro headquarters, 600 Fifth St. NW, in the District. The council has invited transit police to explain the policy, imposed on riders last month.

If you're planning on attending the meeting, send us your impressions via Twitter using #wmatasearch.
