Monday Morning on the 16Y

It goes down Columbia Pike, the main drag in southern Arlington, then straight into DC without feeding into Metrorail. It's very convenient, and will be the key to making that urban corridor "the next big thing," not to mention increase the value of my house.

Yet the drivers are sometimes a bit lazy. Our bus was standing-room only this morning, but a bus on the same route as ours was just two minutes ahead of us. We caught up with it as it crossed the bridge into DC. It was nearly empty. Sometimes these guys just want to get through their route, and to hell with whomever needs to get anywhere. Even after phone camera caught them reading novels or texting while behind the wheel, a few of them like to live dangerously.

But it could have been worse. I could have been sitting next to some self-important little twit on her cell phone.

But enough about all this. Where my second cup of coffee?
