More proof that Washington is an....."interesting" town.

I was walking back from GW today, down K Street towards the Farragut North metro station. At two blocks (K and 18th, and the next block, K and Connecticut) there were people directing traffic.

You know, blowing whistles and motioning for the pedestrians to go or stay put.

At each block, every single street light and crosswalk light was working.

This leads me to one of two conclusions:
1) Washingtonians are too stupid to follow simple directions.
2) Washington Metro Authority gave up on any kind of grasp of an urban train system, and told their employees to "go play in traffic."

Either of those are equally plausible.

That happens in SM every weekend in the summer because it's so crowded. Maybe your city was especially crowded today?
