So here I am on the Orange Line, listening to an audio book on my very stealable music player while I head for Foggy Bottom, when this random guy in khaki shorts and a golf shirt reaches for a Hillwood ad on the train bulkhead, pulls it out of its receptacle, proceeds to read it like it was a newspaper, then gets off the train at Foggy Bottom and walks off with the ad rolled up in his hands. He doesn’t exactly look like a Metro worker.
Okay, WTF? Clueless tourist thinking Metro ads are “take-a-penny, leave-a-penny” deals? Obsessed Hillwood fan and memorabilia collector? Some kind of Marjorie Merriweather Post hater on a quest to minimize DC’s exposure to Hillwood material? Graphic designer of the ad getting a copy for his portfolio? Or just Metro staff tending to train ads on a casual Friday? We report. You deride.*
