On the first day back at work after Bush's second inauguration, riding on the Metro, written on the back of the seat in front of me in black marker: "expect resistance."

Days later, a young woman sat on a plastic milk crate at the top of the Metro escalator holding a sign that said, "I love you."

According to a note floridly scrawled in three colors on the shelter at the commuter train station, Rachel and Tim will be together 4-ever. I wish them the best.

For the duration of the trip to Washington, the digital sign on the train says, UNIT OK 663901.
