Today I was going to downtown Chicago to watch a World Cup match with some friends. Knowing that I might have a fair amount of drink there I decided to take the train and walk to the train station. I get there to see a ton of people on the platform.
It's Sunday at 9:00 AM. There's never a huge crowd for the train. What's up?
I start to notice a theme. Outlandish clothing, one or two transvestites, glitter, and more than one gay pride banner. Ah, the Pride Parade must be today! Well, that's fun.
The train is late due to "accommodating passengers". It occurs to me at that point that the train is likely full.
