I'm not taking it personally,but...
...why, oh why, did this have to happen on the weekend I was planning to take the Acela to NY for the very first time?
Amtrak, oh Amtrak. I keep hoping it will be improved from the last time I tried it, before the Acela was even a gleam in some Amtrak executive's eye. But I figure it's got to be better than when I took the Boston to NY train over Thanksgiving vacation during the Carter-era oil crisis, when there were twice as many people on the train as there were seats. It can't be that bad, right? Right?
So, today is a travel day. Please wish me luck (the good kind)!
