So, What Does WMATA Really Stand For?

Our friend @RitaHayworth tweeted this morning that she wondered if that WMATA actually stood for “We Make Accidents, Terrible Accidents?” That got me thinking. What do you think WMATA actually stands for? Can you come up with some good ones? Best entry gets a $10 farecard purchased by yours truly.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
