Woman struck by train on the way to DC inauguration

“Shortly after 9:30 a.m., Metro officials said a woman fell onto the
subway tracks at a downtown station and was struck by a train,
prompting officials to close two stations and turn around some trains.
It was not clear how the woman ended up on the tracks, spokeswoman Candace Smith said. Metro urged passengers to stand at least two feet away from the platform edge for their safety.”

Not much else to blog about today – the media is all working on the inauguration so there is nothing else in the news…….
