Perhaps this should go to RISKS instead :-) When I was down at the TCP/IP
Interoperability Conference in December, I found a few hours to go into town
and meet a friend for lunch. I have a farecard I keep in my wallet which I
use whenever I'm in DC -- miraculously it still worked. Well my friend
decided to drag me to a State Dept press conference and I went through some
metal detector. When I got back to the Metro station to return to Arlington,
I discovered the farecard would not work (my Am Ex card was fine, and the
farecard was readable in the station office's computer, but not by the
turnstile).

Maybe it was just a fluke, since I'm sure many State Dept employees ride the
Metro, or maybe they have lead-lined wallets... Anyway, the discussion of
farecards on the TCP-IP list was just too hard to pass up.
