Have we reached the nadir? Earlier this week the Post’s Editorial Board wrote:

“IT IS time to consider a radical step to arrest what looks increasingly like a death spiral for Washington’s transit system: federal intervention and control. It is not just folly, but willful neglect, to wait any longer to see if Metro’s problems will somehow solve themselves. They won’t.”

What do you guys think – can the Feds save Metro? Or is there still time for General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld to make the necessary fixes?
