    I got e-coli from that Guapo’s. So now I have two reasons not to go back there.

    Apparently there are a lot of illegal immigrants working at Guapo’s in Shirlington?

    And another fine morning (NOT!) on the Orange line – 7 minute wait for first train at EFC, which was already jammed. Only about half of those on the platform made it on. Long wait for next train. Every stop going into DC had a packed platform. Engineer on train I was on mentioned “lots of door closing problems due to the cold”. How was everyone else’s O-line commute this morning?

      Courthouse platform was pretty crowded around 9:07. Four inbound trains came though within 2 mins of each other and the platform cleared by the third train. I however enjoyed waiting over 8 mins for my outbound train which made me miss my bus connection at WFC. I heard brief mention of an issue at EFC causing delays.

        You’re fortunate. My wife & I got there at 8:20 when the last “usable” train left. It was about 9:10 until we could get on a train without risking breaking the doors.

  • I don’t mind paying for internet access at the airports. Boingo is $10/month for unlimited access at any airport and many other places.

    The problem is the connection — DCA’s internet access is excruciatingly slow and hard to connect to. Multiple emails to various people has resulted in no improvements over the past two years.
