File under “cautiously optimistic”

Although I know that the MTA breaks everything it touches, I’m still looking forward to this month’s automation of the L train. Getting trapped in the closing doors doesn’t concern me on the automated L train any more than it does when I ride an elevator. Otherwise, anything that allows the MTA to run trains more frequently (if, indeed, this project lives up to that particular bit of hype) is all right in my book.
