The Tube

I am captivated by this six episode BBC documentary series about the London Underground. I realize that not everyone may be fascinated by infrastructure and crowd control. You should be, because metropolitan public transportation is an amazing feat of technology, sociology, and logistics. And everyone hates it.

It’s funny; one of the things I miss about San Francisco is the public transportation, even though it was frustrating every day to wait around and deal with delays and crowded trains. Being uncomfortable on a train was more fun and interesting than being along in a car sitting in traffic.
