(Washington Post)   The top 16 staff at DC Metro earn almost $200,000 each. Just imagine what they'd be earning if they knew how to keep escalators running for more than a week   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 58

I took a trip to DC a couple weeks ago, and I thought the Metro was really well run, despite the occasional derpy set of escalators. The only time that was inconvenient was when I was dragging a bag along with me. Otherwise, you do enough walking in DC that an extra set of stairs isn't exactly going to be a game breaker.

Wendy's Chili: Public employees should make no more than $2 an hour, paid in Jefferson bills, and have to spend their weekends licking clean the anuses of bankers after they take a dump.


Ahem -- if you are going to post stuff like this at least do us the favor of letting us know where we can find some MIND BLEACH!!! Oh the image!!

groppet: Pocket Ninja: CowardlyLion: If you're whining about escalators not working and you don't have any kind of physical disability, just kill yourself. Or learn to use stairs. You'll probably find the former to be easier, though.

Someone's never been to Wheaton.

Rosslyn has the escalator of death as well.


Rosslyn is the second longest escalator in the world btw... so yeah - it needs to work.

Wait until subby finds out what dead weight in the private sector can make.

KatjaMouse: baltimoreblonde: thurstonxhowell: Am I the only one who has mostly found the Metro to be mostly well-run and convenient?

Nope. I refuse to drive when I go to DC. Take the MARC and use Metro to get around. As long as I remember not to go when the cherry blossoms are out. BIG mistake. Rarely have a problem with Metro once I figured out the fare system and that new farecard...

Don't get me wrong. When Metro works, it effing works. It's a better alternative to driving into the city. One of the factors in choosing a wedding venue was that it was near Metro. But if I have a number of guests held up because of a delay I wouldn't be shocked either.


It's even better that I don't have to worry about parking in DC. Factoring in MARC tickets and Metro fares, it's STILL a good deal for me. I love trains, so riding the MARC is a bonus, anyway. An hour from Baltimore to Union Station lets me relax before the walking starts, and chill out on the way home.

I'm still waiting for them to extend the Blue Line down to Belvoir. It would be even better if they could get it down to Woodbridge but not going to hold my breath.

There's the key. Try riding it day in and day out sometime.
