Miraculously there were no fatalities when these trains started mating at Woodley Park Metro

When people in other cities complain about their commuter rail systems, I just laaaaaaugh and laugh.

The entire Metro system will shut down for at least 29 hours starting at midnight tonight for safety checks of electric cables, three Metro officials said.

[…]

They took the step after an electric cable caught fire before the system opened Monday. The shutdown is to avoid a repeat of the deadly smoke incident at L’Enfant Plaza last year.

For extra ironic irony, this past weekend Metro staged a major fire drill.

But I guess I shouldn’t complain. After God King Ted Cruz assumes his rightful place as the nation’s ruler, women won’t be allowed to leave the home at all!
