Riddle me this
A question for the brain trust at the Charles/MGH subway stop - what exactly is the point of running a down escalator? Doesn't gravity already have that base covered? Not that I don't appreciate the extra cardio in the morning, but if you have to pick a direction owing to the fact that you only have one escalator up sure makes a hell of a lot more sense.
