Unsettling WMATA Metro Numbers

Understandably, large companies don’t want their skeletons in the closet revealed to the world. however in the case of the WMATA, their skeletons seem to be bursting at the seams, culminating with the 2009 red line crash that killed 8 passengers and 1 driver. Although it has been two years since the incident, WMATA doesn’t […]

Rant: Un-Constructive Criticism

So I understand that one of the great things about the internet is that anyone can voice their opinion about anything. websites like Yelp help consumers find places with consistently high ratings, as written by users.
