Recessive Wait

(Continued from Page 1)

The NYT editors argue that President Bush's proposed $1.5 billion to encourage heterosexual marriage would be more effectively spent on pregnancy prevention, job training for single mothers, and programs to keep poor young men in school.

A Post reader laments the creeping length of station names on the D.C. Metro. The National Airport station is now the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport station, U Street-Cardozo has become U Street-African American Civil War Museum-Cardozo, a new station in Eckington will be called New York Avenue-Florida Avenue-Gallaudet University, and Archives-Navy Memorial (which used to be just Archives) will become Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter. "Why not go all the way and call it the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter-National Gallery-Shakespeare Theatre Station?" he writes. "Then the Smithsonian station can be called Smithsonian-Mall-Holocaust Museum-Washington Monument-Jefferson Memorial-Printing and Engraving-Agriculture."
