TBD’s John Hendel shares a Facebook posting from a Metro station manager, who has a message for the “haters and these white people who hate Metro.” Let it be known: “I challenge any one of these people to put on a blue or white shirt and come out in the field/on the front line to see if they could make it through a day without going the [expletive] off on someone. It may appear to be an easy task but trust me it’s not.”
