Metro light-rail spokeswoman Hillary Foose confirmed media reports that a man took a box of poop on a train this morning and threw it on the floor. Unhappy passengers disembarked at the 36th Street and Washington station, and the train was sent directly to the nearby maintenance yard at 40th Street for a good scrubbing.
Thanks to a recent New Times article, Metro is probably more efficient at dealing with such shituations.
