Red Line (CTA)
The Red Line, sometimes known as the Howard-Dan Ryan Line and the North-South Line, is a heavy rail line in Chicago, run by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) as part of the Chicago 'L' system. It is CTA's busiest rail line, with an average of 268,580 passengers boarding each weekday in September 2012. The route is 23.4 miles (37.7 km) long (66-minute ride) with a total of 33 stations, from Rogers Park (Howard Street) on the City Limits north, through downtown Chicago, and to Roseland (95th/Dan Ryan) on the south. Like the Blue Line, the Red Line runs 24 hours/365 days a year; together with the Blue Line, it is only one of four mass-transit rail systems in the United States (the others being the PATCO Speedline, the PATH lines, and the New York City Subway) to do so.

“The remnant of Indians thereaboutall but exterminated in their recent and final war with regular white troops, a war waged by the Red Men for their native soil and natural rightshad been coerced into the occupancy of wilds not far beyond the Mississippi.”

“I fear I agree with your friend in not liking all sermons. Some of them, one has to confess, are rubbish: but then I release my attention from the preacher, and go ahead in any line of thought he may have started: and his after-eloquence acts as a kind of accompanimentlike music while one is reading poetry, which often, to me, adds to the effect.”
—Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (18321898)
