I do a lot of cartoons making fun of the DC Metro system, but I'm a big supporter. I take the train every day, except when I'm off-site in my undisclosed location, where I DON'T work in my pajamas, by the way. I prefer my Gandhi loincloth, gorilla mask and ballet slippers. Grrr! Don't mess with me, but if you do, I won't fight back!
When we moved to Washington, one of the few things I was looking for was walking distance to a Metro stop. We landed a bit farther away than ideal, so if you add my total walking distance on both ends of the ride together, it's longer than if I walked directly to work. I work at odd times, so I often am up before dawn, and D.C. has what to me was an unknown category: dark heat. That's why I don't wear the gorilla mask as I dance my way up to the station. I calculated that the hill I go up is the same height as the broken escalator I have to walk down to the train platform, so I have started a level tunnel directly from my house. Oh, but the NOSY NEIGHBORS COMPLAINED because I was putting the dirt in their basement, and now the earthquake has set everything back..
Anyway, it all beats driving. In Washington traffic or anywhere else. The automobile is one of the great inventions of all time except nobody noticed we had made too many of them and wrecked half the things that were lovable about this world. --Tom Toles
