But they Made the Deathtraps Run on Time

Berlin: The S-Bahn, she is broken. And all this in a place where whining and self-loathing is the city’s official sport. The city’s commuter trains, having once been entirely run by the East Germans (even in the west), appear to have barely benefitted from the cursory face lift that it’s gotten since then. Seriously, if the 50’s were in again, they’d be stylin’!

Maybe they can call the whole thing a living museum of the former Communist state, or something. But then again they only take historical memory as long as it doesn’t really hurt.

Thanks to Observing Hermann: it’s still better than bad art.
