Hey, thanks, NBC 10, for the "Breaking News" e-mail telling me the Dow Jones Industrial Average today closed above its previous all-time high.

But where was the e-mail blast alerting me and thousands of other Market-Frankford El riders to the hellacious evening commute that was ahead of us? Now that would have been both interesting and useful.

And I heard nothing on KYW AM ("Traffic and transit on the twos!"), nor saw anything at its web site, nor that of sister station CBS Channel 3, which is weird, and frankly inexplicable, because I can't imagine there wasn't a single person at either operation who failed to notice hundreds of people standing about, confused and uninformed, at the intersection of 5th and Market Streets, right outside the stations' front door!
