Every time I see a positive mention of the subway in Los Angeles, I feel a bit proud. As I wrote in Cyclists, subway rider, and rollerblader all beat jet during Carmageddon:
My last job in southern California was as an inspector for paleontological and archeological resources in the first leg of the subway, a provision of the federal money used for the subject. I went down in all of the station excavations between Union Station and MacArthur Park for two years ending in August 1989. Consequently, when anyone mentions L.A.'s subway, I can say that I helped build it.I'm glad to have done my part to make my old home town more sustainable.
