Metro, always improving service...always

D.C. considers random searches (on Metro)

While it is certainly a challenging task to secure an open system like DC's Metro from attack, there has got to be a better way than to conduct random searches of customers. . .You know like public strip searches or anal probes. Seems to me that random searches could possibly deter would be bombers, but New York seems to have a better take on the situation. Dogs can sniff out explosive that are hidden in say a boom box, where as a random search may not.

As it is riding DC's Metro is not a pleasant experience - delays, crowded trains, breakdowns, escalator issues, drivers abandoning their trains, near head on collisons, tunnel fact, metro is doing a pretty good job of scaring off customers on its own.
