Sure the icy sidewalks and roads are a nuisance, but not as much of a nuisance as the speeding bus of death that killed two Alexandria women.
The two women were on Seventh Street NW in the Penn Quarter neighborhood and had the "walk" signal to cross Pennsylvania Avenue when a northbound bus turned left onto the avenue about 6:40 p.m., said Lisa Farbstein, a Metro spokeswoman.
This is unbelievable. Either a train is hitting some track workers on the Yellow Line or someone gets plowed over by the H8 bus on 16th and Park. Whatever it is, it's becoming all too common. I mean, I complain all the time about the Metro being soul-crushing. But soul-crushing is way better than organ crushing. Organs are tangible. I like my organs. I shouldn't have to worry about them everytime I cross the fucking street.
