    Given what Metro have told us about conditions Katz’s motion reflects reality, whether the eventual station is in a trench or at grade past 48th. Contrary to Goodmon’s bombast given excessive deference by the Wave it appears Ridley-Thomas is at fault for grandstanding when he should have been working out a fair compromise. I think this is about the best that will occur, despire all the chest thumping. What a disgraceful performance by Ridley-Thomas!

    I’m rooting for that Leimert Park station.
