Ew...the Red Line Is Dirty, As Well As Crazy

This falls under the category of things you rationally know are true, but that you don't really want to see quantified.

We have confirmed that the Red Line is the Crazy Line. It is also the filthy line.

Riders who don't wash their hands between riding the CTA and eating are
potentially at risk for colds, the flu, cold sores and food-related
illnesses, such as salmonella poisoning, Smith said.

"I don't mean to be nosy, but what are you doing?" rider Chiquita
Weatherspoon asked Smith as he swabbed a pole on a northbound Red Line

Also - Chiquita Weatherspoon? What a fantastic name.
