Metro Threatening Cuts

Ridership may be up, but so are costs and, hence, shortfalls. They're talking major cuts - like no train service after 10 p.m., which would be a real killer for those of us who sometimes do things like, say, going to the theatre after work.

But why worry about what Metro will do, when you can write haiku about it:

Instead of cutting
out train service after 10,
I suggest more ads.

They are also talking about running non-rush hour trains 30 minutes apart. Given how long I waited to change trains at L'enfant Plaza after going to the theatre tonight, I might pose this theological question:

Would the messiah
be able to make metro
run efficiently?
