On the Red Line, no good deed goes unread

Lisa Medina reports that MBTA General Manager Richard Davey boarded the Red Line at Park Street this morning only to find coffee sloshing on the floor. So he picked up one of the car's spare Metros and put it down on the coffee, no doubt because, as all good T employees know, the Metro is extra absorbent.

And then, Medina adds, a woman picked up one of the coffee-drenched sections and began to read it.
