Overheard on the Metro

One of the best things about taking public transportation is the conversations you overhear. (It can also be one of the worst, I know, but go with me here.) Tonight on the Orange Line featured two classic examples.

1) "It should be a great thing educating people about economics. But the sad reality is that you have to spend your time teaching Harvard students."

2) "It has two f's and two k's."

I assume the first was a disgruntled professor turned Congressional staffer. I hope the people involved in the second were doing a word puzzle.
