Massive power outage traps Amtrack riders in tunnels deep below the Hudson! Or, even worse, in Baltimore! People who aren't impressive enough for the Delta shuttle unable to make it back to DC to build up the connections necessary to raise their stature!
Here's the particularly worrying part, actually:
An Amtrak spokeswoman told CNN that crews were working as fast as possible to restore electric power, but she could not say when service would be restored or whether Amtrak would be running on schedule for the holiday weekend.
Have a great Memorial Day, everyone! We'll be either taking the bus or locking ourselves in our apartment with a bottle of Jim Beam. Cost effective, reliable, efficient. Everything public transit isn't.
