I am a Florida resident on active duty in the Army. Reading all the posts it makes me nervous to see that one little mistake no matter whos fault it is could cost my children the opportunity to be awarded the scholarship. I guess the up-side is that they would be eligible for in-state tuition since you are stationed here, but not the scholarship. Paul September 14th, at
On a short trip I almost always prefer the train to flying. No TSA screening, no baggage fees, no expensive cab ride to get downtown, more comfortable seats, better food than flying, and sometimes even faster. Departing from Washington D. My train was scheduled to depart in about 40 minutes.
There were already well over people on the boarding line. The seats are in almost all cases first come, first served. If you think arriving early to get a good spot on line is the answer, think again. The line winds back and forth, in and around seats, away from the track entrance, then back again.
When the gate finally opens the situation instantly dissolves into complete chaos as the entire waiting area rushes the door from all directions. You may have been waiting in line patiently for an hour, 20 people from the door, only to find that someone who arrived 5 minutes before the gate opened beats you to the train as he edges in from the side while the crowd pushes you further and further back from where you started.
Everyone, and I mean every single person in that giant waiting room who is waiting for an outbound train, regardless of destination, is lumped together in a huge crowd, eyes straining upward to the enormous departures board. Surrounding the crowd on the perimeter of this mass of humanity, are the track entrances.
Like thoroughbreds at the starting gate each person in the room is waiting for one thing to appear on that board: Track numbers are usually not announced until about 10 minutes before the trains actually depart. This means there is NO line until the track number goes up and when it does look out!
Is this any way to run a railroad! Red Cap to the rescue Amtrak Red Cap Short of getting Amtrak to see the insanity of this process and fix it not bloody likely what can you do? In the age of wheelie bags you just need to remember two words: You will find them in all major train stations, immediately recognizable by their red caps go figure.
The Red Cap my friends is the solution to all your problems. Simply find a Red Cap in the station. Miracle of miracles, the Red Cap knows something nobody else in the waiting room knows: Leaving the hundreds of people in the waiting room still staring expectantly at the board, we were down on the track before our train even arrived at the station.
No worries about where we wanted to sit much less whether we were going to get a seat at all, once the incoming train emptied our Red Cap just took us directly to the car that we asked for, waited for us to select the seats we wanted — pretty easy since the train was empty — and stowed our luggage nearby.
It was all done a good 5 to 10 minutes before the mad rush of people arrived from upstairs. Not sure where the best seat is for you?
Ask the Red Cap. He knows exactly how the train is laid out.Jun 02, · #9. Philosophy, always gets me. I have a few friends that dropped out of the business college to persue this degree.

We will FIGHT until girls don’t live with fear of attending school We will FIGHT until education is a freedom, a right, an expectation for everyone” This is the first stanza of a piece of slam poetry my friend and I wrote and performed at our school’s rendition of TED Talks.
