It seems there's some kind of strike happening here in New Yorkistan. Not sure about the details since I work at home and rarely ever see daylight. But hop on over to Gothamist to find out what the brouhaha is about, and then enter their "most inconvenient commute" contest. The winner's prize? An unlimited monthly Metrocard, of course!
P.S. When I told my lovely mother, who lives in Cleveland, that the transit strike might cause me a problem getting to the airport tomorrow, she replied, "Well, can't you just get a cab?" As if the other 8 million people trying to get around New York wouldn't also be vying for a cab. Ah, the blissful ignorance of living where no one else does.
