“Dear PoP,

One of WMATA’s proposals for balancing the budget is to close the 10th and U Street entrance to the green line on weekends. This and other proposals on the link below are up for public comment until Wednesday, January 27th. Would you please post this on your website, in case your readers would like to object to (or support) the metro entrance closure?”

While we discussed service cuts vs. a 10 cents fare increase, how do folks feel about closing metro entrances?
