Today, Metro commute was a madhouse again. Sounds familiar? Right around the same time last year, I had a similar hell-like commute (Read my entry here). Why I'm making a big fuss about this? It's because it seems to happen around my birthday. Coincidence? Perhaps and I'm just hoping it's just coincidence. I really don't want to spend my birthdays commuting for two hours and having to deal with sardine-packed shuttles or buses. In the center of it all, my heart goes to the two Metro track workers who got into an accident early morning today. (You can read their story here.) Really, DC Metro has to do better in ensuring the overall safety of their system, workers and riders. Last year, DC Metro was front news due to a big accident and lost of lives. Although I feel confident riding the Metro most of the time, sometimes I can't help but wonder if I'm really safe at all.
