Least he could do is throw himself in front of a train.

Wiedefeld said the next six months will give Metro's board time to find his replacement and ensure an orderly transition.

Hire a donkey. A drunk donkey. Have it answer yes/no questions based on where it shiats. You'll get better results than the current DC senior leadership provides.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: Least he could do is throw himself in front of a train.


The trains would actually have to be operating in order for that to happen.

Well that's certainly something. As a depressive with suicidal ideation, I've noticed that the suicidal generally fall into two categories:

- People who are in despair and see no point in suffering on. This tends to cover most "common" people and celebrities.

- Cowards who don't see a way out on top of the self-inflicted bullsh*t that's coming their way. This tends to covers politicians and other elected officials, especially the higher you go.

So which was this guy?

Hey, Bro.
Get a load of those clowns in government.
What a bunch of clowns.
Am I right, Bro?
Yeah!

I don't know. The initial stories all said "he wasn't fired by the Board on Wednesday." Which I thought was strange, unless they were trying to quell speculation.

As anyone from the DC area knows, it's not HIS fault but it is the union's fault 110%.

You're talking about the defective series 7000 rail cars that were built in Japan?
What union caused that?
