Wow, that was a close one, but Washington’s “Other Congressman” Louie Gohmert is safe, running unopposed in the 2008 elections. With a mere $300,000 to campaign with throughout the entire densely-populated Piney Woods of East Texas, it might have been a squeaker. Good thing no one wanted to run against him.

Series 8001 Metro Meteor Series (concept, NotionsCapital Engineering)
DCist had a post yesterday on the 7000 Series Metro Cars. Yawn. Look pretty much like the old Metro Cars after someone’s ralphed on the upholstery.
NotionsCapital, of course, has previewed Metro’s wish-list rolling stock before, but today we have a really Sci-Fi Network (Psychic Network?) type exclusive. Not the ho-hum series 7000, but the 8000 series.
Exterior view above; interior below.
Well worth the fare increase..
