Almost perfect timing ...

2009-08-17 07:30 Having completed the project of travelling the entirety of the Vancouver SkyTrain network the previous day, we catch a taxi from our hotel to the airport.
2009-08-17 13:00 The new SkyTrain Canada Line opens, with (inter alia) stations two blocks from our hotel, and at the airport.

What is going on?

So I wander off to see what the score is on the second day of the final Ashes Test match, expecting that England will have been dismissed, and that Australia will be building a decent reply.

Only to find out that England are batting, in their second innings. Australia have collapsed after lunch, almost far enough behind to deserve a follow on.

Is it me, or is the story of the Ashes this year basically one of which team collapses first?
