I know.  I felt especially sorry for all of those people stuck in the subway. 
 You have no idea how hot subway stations are in the summer time.  And it was 
a 95 degree day.  It is so hot down there, from all of the trains running, 
and there is no cool air pumped down there.  It's incredible.  

On a hot 90-95 degree day, it's uncomfortable to even wait on the subway 
platform; sweat will pour off you if you are waiting more than two minutes for a 
train to pull in to a subway station.  Only the trains are air conditioned; the 
subway tunnels and stations are not.  On a hot day, a wave of relief comes 
over you when you are waiting for a train and one actually shows up.

So those people who were evacuated from trains and had to walk three miles 
through the subway tunnels to get out - they REALLY suffered!
