I'm flying back to Atlanta this weekend for a family function. For those unaware, parts of the Blue Line leading to O'Hare run in between the Kennedy Expressway, and this includes the platforms. I was standing on the platform waiting for my train and watched the cars fly by in both directions. This is a rarity on the Kennedy as it can logjam at any time of day simply because somebody in Idaho sneezed. It was rather exhilarating to see and hear the cars zooming by in both directions. People moving into the city, going out of the city. All at 80mph. Either it really was that cool, or I was just awake and at it way too flippin' early this morning.
