Chicago ~ April 21, 2005

I'd been trying to figure out why this says "Metra" instead of "Metro" or even "Metropolitain." Then I realized (duh) I could easily look it up. It turns out that Metra is the actual name of the commuter rail division of the Illinois Regional Transportation Authority. Thanks, Wikipedia!

Well, I could have told you that! My grandparents lived in Chicago and I spent many a summer there. We often took the metra downtown to the zoo or the museums. :)
Thanks for the memories.

How on earth were you trying to figure it out withOUT an online search? For me it's become second nature to let my fingers do the walking for ANY question I have.
