We know D.C. Get our free newsletter to stay in the know.
For this week’s paper, we asked readers to submit their ideas for a tagline for D.C.’s eventual streetcar. The suggestions were all inspiring—-certainly more so than the District Department of Transportation’s proposals—-but these five stood out:
Because White People Won’t Take the Bus
It’ll Be Here Before Statehood!
Where “The Plan” Advances
Because Bikes Are Too Damn Fast
A Streetcar Named Ire
Choosing between these is a little like choosing between Babe Ruth and Michael Jordan; they’re just awesome on different levels. But in the end, we settled on our favorite. And the winner is…
A Streetcar Named Ire! Commenter darren, please step forward to claim your prize.
Somehow I’m doubting that DDOT will adopt the name, but—-surprise me, DDOT!
