the other thing Metro could learn from London (which uses the same system as ORCA) is to refund the card deposit (and the value left on the card) when a tourist returns it. If London can do it, then so can Metro.

Recipe question: are those whole pecans that you mix in to the dough or are they chopped first? Seems like chopping them would be best....
