Wonder if one of her assistants

walked into the room as she was reading, then interrupted to tell her there was a disabled train on the Red Line.

If the chief executive....

... is involved when a train breaks down, then the organization is pretty badly borked. A chief executive is not supposed to be spending her time dealing with broken trains; a chief executive is supposed to be dealing with whatever shortcomings in process, organization, staffing, training, operational management, capital planning, etc. are leading to a higher-than-acceptable number of broken trains.

I met Ms. Scott in her days

I met Ms. Scott in her days as head of RIPTA, and I was impressed, I hope she's able to make progress with fixing the T.

Meanwhile, it would be poetic justice if she took the T to this school and ended up getting stuck on a delayed bus or train.
