Did you hear about the mother who came home last night only to find her two kids dead in the bathtub? The mother got home around midnight after work. Daddy was home “taking care” of the kids.
Allegedly, he drowned the two little ones in the bathtub. He then went down to the subway and threw [...]

It is annoying how one little problem on a subway line can screw things up EVERYWHERE. A five minute diversion on the C train can cause hours of backups on the 1 train. Stuff like that.
This morning, there must have been a holdup somewhere because the entire platform was 10 people deep. Even then, it [...]

Well I wish there were more to blog about than the insane amount of rain lately, but that’s the big story.
I was lucky enough to get on The Death Car this morning before the rain hit. Unfortunately, this afternoon’s trip is a wet one!  Out my office window, it looked like it didn’t stop raining [...]

I just heard the subway pulling into the station as I was walking downstairs. So, I ran through the turnstile to get down here. Unfortunately, I had to jump into a car that I usually don’t get in.
I’m what you call an “end-rider.” I prefer to ride near the very front or rear of the [...]

What’s with all the subway cars with broken air conditioning?

In a hurry, I unknowingly jump onto those busted cars and immediately say to myself, “Well, maybe if I let the doors close on my head [...]
