We just stumbled on proof positive that LA has a subway system. The Metro has an online store! It sells notebooks and coffee mugs and umbrellas (umbrellas!) with maps of the subway and other metro transit lines. The valley-based Orange line gets a store section all its own. Of course, there are t-shirts and baby onesies and enamel pins and teddy bears; all this stuff indicates that we do have a working transit system.

And it's getting bigger: that's evidenced by the fantastic art deco-slash-Russian-style Eastside Extension poster, which manages to makes municipal construction seem kinda sexy.

What will it take to make you join us on the Metro?
