    Living in Washington, I can tell you three things about Metro operations and “security”:

    1. Metro can’t run its frakkin’ trains and buses on time, because they can’t maintain them.
    2. Metro can’t deal with real security issues — personal thefts on trains, assaults in Metro-controlled spaces — that it currently has.
    3. Metro’s management and governance are a bunch of useless elected officials and bureaucrats (and I’m looking at you, Jim Graham) who are hopelessly out of touch with the real needs of riders and the businesses — including the Federal government — they support.

    As for me, I’m loading up my gym bag with the nastiest set of gym kit I can find. Take that, security theater!
