Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I believe -- I could be wrong -- that Washington's subway system now has metal detectors, but I recognize that it's not a great comparison, since the Underground is serving millions and millions of people, while the DC subway servesmaybe half a million, I'm guessing.  London has got to be eight times the size of DC, in terms of population, and perhaps even more.

The "tunnel under the channel" part is what really gets to me.  I'm not very big on being near the water -- yes, despite having lived five miles from the Atlantic Ocean for most of my life.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
