Since the Metro accident in June I’ve been taking the bus, and I’ll continue to do so for the following reasons:
• I always see a neighbor, friend, or colleague.
• I can listen to NPR.
• Everyone starts to look familiar.
• The route I take goes past the whole DC panorama, from the Capitol building to the city’s homeless shelters.
• If there’s an accident, chances are I can climb out.
• no clueless tourists!
