The Bottom of the Transit Death Spiral

Mike Licht

Last week, we brought you what we thought was sophisticated revamp of the current Metro system map.

That is TOO funny! And I am sure the commute will be just as long as it is now.

KUDOS Unsuck for the article in today's Wshington Post! About time you were recognized!

(And I am stunned by the employee's comment about who rightfully 'belongs.')

Making great big assumptions about your readership with that kids comment!

You are reinforcing stereotypes people have about bloggers!
