Random Commuter Observation (TM) - Lord of the Flies Edition

It's only supposed to reach a wringing-wet ninety-five degrees today. Perhaps I should have brought my parka along.

Riders of Dee Cee's metro (at least on the Orange Line, which serves the northern and western Virginny burbs) tend to be a fairly civil lot. But always after a few days of this kind of weather, one begins to see that civility crumbling: There's more shoving, more sarcastic comments, some shouting.

It sometimes happens in the winter, too, especially right around Christmas. But at least then one isn't covered in sticky sweat.

Orange line in summertime? And without the ability to bring a Starbucks iced tea on board? Glad I don't live in Arlington anymore.
