On Thursday, a woman gave birth to a baby while waiting for the yellow line at DC’s L’Enfant plaza, perhaps the only place on the planet less sanitary than a manger. It’s a L’Enfant infant. A L’infant. Terrific. So if you’re looking to give birth in a Metro station, what’s your best option?

1.) Medical Center. Sounds hospital-y.

2.) Foggy Bottom GWU. They saved Reagan.

3.) Stadium-Armory. There are helicopters right outside.

4.) Cleveland Park. It’s right by Vace, that has to count for something.

5.) Capitol South. You’ll never give birth in This Town again.

6.) Union Station. It’s near the Department of Labor. Get it? Labor. Okay.

7.) Strathmore. Music is supposed to be good for a baby, right? We read that once.

45.) Dunn Loring. Is this even a real place?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
