    Pretty common tactic for bureaucracies of all stripes, including corporate.

    Toles lives in DC, so “metro” is DC metro system. It is run about as well as anything run in DC, meaning unreliable, expensive and inefficient.

    Despite seeing it first hand, he refuses to be mugged by reality.

    Oh no, you are wrong. Metro is terrible by DC standards. The Metro board can’t figure out why people won’t ride so they hire a PR person to fix that problem which they think is the only one.

    Most of the suggestions to increase Metro ridership center around how to make driving so miserable and expensive that metro seems a reasonable alternative.

    Can’t have working public transpiration in the Nation’s Capitol. What kind of message would THAT send to the oil and automotive lobbies, eh? We’re talking money on the table here, not money underground.

    A friend of mine that works in D.C. started out by driving to work. To him, driving was so miserable that he decided to try the Metro. He went back to driving.

    Government screws up everything it does and yet people want government to do more, which government will screw up. Government is inherently corrupt, the only way to reduce the corruption is to reduce the size of government.

    Extremist, lefty-logic. Ideas so good, they have to be legislated.


    Everyone in the know says it is bad service, so it must be Fox/Rush trying to pollute the planet.


    You are more comic than most of the toons.

    The DC Metro system used to be good. What happened?

    I dunno, I hear a lot of people say “government should invade this country, government should execute that person”. Apparently government is flawless when it comes to killing.

    I thought it was supposed to be good when nothing happens in DC?

    D.C. is a peculiar city, run and owned by the rich to super rich and it is very hard for work-a-day people to live there. Too expensive, so they have to commute.

    People will ride the metro when it is working. It has and can, it cuts down pollution and traffic. But when it is run by people who have other ideas than making it work, like righties, then it will be terrible.
