    Likely it’s about public transit in Washington DC. A reoccurring theme for Mr. Toles.

    The Silver Line is a spur line on the Washington Metro that’s supposed to connect it to Dulles Airport and to suburban business areas like Tysons Corner. The first parts are supposed to open later this spring.

    No jealousy oozing from that statement.

    “Egocentric” The propensity to expect others to behave as you would.

    Very established human trait, your expectation of how this came about is most likely exactly how you would have done it yourself.
    This explains many of your past postings as well.

    My dad was high in NASA many years ago. They opened a new facility, and had to move a large research library. This is a complex job, as maintaining the organization of the collection is not simple. The contract went to the lowest bidder of course. And the guy showed up on moving day with a large can and a half-a-dozen high school students working part-time.

    The results can be imagined.

    Penny wise and pound foolish. Save a buck in one area, and it ends up costing you ten in another. I have seen this sort of bad judgment often in every size of enterprise from the household to large corporations. The problem is often that the people who “save” the money, are not the ones who have to pay for the rectification of the problem they’ve caused.
