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…

…drumroll, please…

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!
