Metro can’t catch a break. Yesterday, the Examiner revealed, a Red line train operator ran a red signal in the Brentwood yard, causing a car to derail and damage the tracks and the third rail in that segment of the yard. No damage estimates were available, and it’s not clear why the operator ran the red signal.

C’mon guys, this just isn’t fun anymore.

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.
