Quick thought on the London Tube strike

(Update for provincial readers: there’s currently a two-day strike by workers on the Tube, which is a kind of underground railway, which is like a long series of coaches powered by electricity, which is a magical invisible force that can move things without the aid of horses and rope.)

The more of us who have season tickets, the less a strike can cost TfL in lost profits.

Ha! "provincial' must be British for 'hick'. Here in the states we're watching the feeds and can't help but notice how twitterific the coverage of the strike has been thus far.
