I complain an awful lot about the subway, but I should give it a break. Why? Because the subway is not a bus.
Today I helped a friend move into a luxurious apartment building on Connecticut Avenue. Instead of taking my usual Red Line trip to Tenleytown, I walked past Dupont Circle to catch the L line.
I waited outside in the sun for 27 minutes. It was a grim reminder of my Massachusetts Avenue days when I was dependent upon N line buses that would often fail to show up on time. I almost forgot what it was like to wake up 30 minutes earlier than necessary due to the probability of a bus not showing up. That sucked then. I imagine it still sucks now.
