It's still hot here. And because of the heat, the Metro folks have determined that the trains need to run more slowly on the tracks. I'm willing to make the giant leap of faith and believe them that there is in fact a relationship between the temperature and train speed. Why they are now running half as many trains in the system, I don't understand. You can slow down the system, but when you take away half of the trains, there are twice as many people - sweaty people - now on each train, and it's taking all of them longer to get where they're going. What am I missing here?
