It's an El not a Subway, get out!
It seems there was a derailment of one of our commuter trains and a fire during rush hour.
Despite the fact that it was the underground portion, and regardless of what CNN thinks the CTA trains are the El, not the subway (compare the photo on the left with this link).
A woman I work with left for the day yesterday and called back to say that she had heard that it was terrorists. Of course it wasn't, but that is the first thing we think of today. Sad really.
In fact this donut reporter has since found out it was actually the work of one misguided young woman. This is an exclusive photo from the event as it happened.
It appears that she was targeting the man seen in the following photo. He actually slept through the attack.
(While MJ is on sabbatical getting in touch with his camouflage side I'm trying to keep you all amused (in my own special style)).
