The summons comes with a free Metro Transit coupon, good for one free ride. In another coincidence, I got 1 1/2 free rides today. The hybrid busses that go up and down Nicollet, the 18, were free. Going to work, I took advantage of the MTC's largess and walked the four blocks on the second leg, for a totally free ride. Coming home, I had to take the first leg first, and didn't know if the bus would be free. In fact, I'd totally forgotten about it. So I wound up paying one full fare for four blocks of bus, which is still half of my normal commuting expense for the day.
And in other news, the reason I started this post: skylarker and kalimac have already posted their Fantasy Matters conreport, so I might as well put up the picture of his visit.
