    ...DC would have died of gridlock a decade ago.  As it is, it could use a bunch more Metro lines and stops.

    •  I'd love to take the Metro (0+ / 0-)

      but I live 12 miles south of the southernmost station in Virginia.  It would take me an hour to get there in the morning rush, and then another hour to catch a train and get into DC.  As opposed to driving to a carpool lot and picking up slugs, and then going in on the HOV lanes, which takes about 45-50 minutes door-to-door.  Plus, the firm I work for reimburses for parking if you work overtime (which I do just about every night), but not for mass transit costs.  What's wrong with this picture?
