Ike Leggett has expressed his desire for Metro to do away with one of the little perks of living in Silver Spring. The county executive believes that train “turnarounds” at the Silver Spring Metro station should be eliminated. Apparently doing so would somehow save the county money or end poverty or cure cancer or something.
Having a good chance at empty train (and an empty seat) is one of the advantages commuters to and from Silver Spring have enjoyed since the station opened in 1978.
To quote The Dude quoting George H.W. Bush, "This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man.” Taking away our turnarounds will tear at the fabric of what it means to live in Silver Spring. Contact Metro immediately and let them know how you feel about this potential travesty!
