metro: Feel the Prid!
Before heading out to meet the fellas yesterday, I checked in with WMATA’s Trip Planner as I always do.* Just before putting in my search query, I saw this banner ad on the page.
I’ve probably seen it in years past as well and didn’t take much notice of it. But with the recent war within the District** between black churches and da’ gays, I wonder if WMATA’s going to take any guff from anyone for daring to show support for the annual pride festival. I also wonder if anyone will even notice.
But if Civil War does come to D.C., I’ve already got my answer for the inevitable question. I’m on Cap’s side, duh.***
Update: For those who don’t eat, breathe and sleep The Simpsons, here’s the origin of Prid :

* Seriously, I hate being late, but I hate heading to the bus stop or metro station super early and waiting around forever too.
** Per the WaPo: “All hell is going to break lose [sic],” Barry said while speaking to reporters. “We may have a civil war. The black community is just adamant against this.”
*** The one that died, not the new one.
