  1. Good afternoon,

    Do you guys have an image of the tap card that was released for limited time for the opening of the Expo Line to Culver City? I have looked for it for years and have not even found an image of it. It would be awesome to see it at least one more time. That was my go to Card until my sister lost it. Its like it never existed. It had landmarks including the Natural History Museum and others. It was in a cartoon sort of way.

    • Hi Martin,

      Do you mean this card?

      Some online transit fan groups often trade limited edition TAP cards, we don’t know of any off hand but it’s worth checking out to see if any pop up.

      Edited to add: sorry I think I know which card you’re talking about now, but that card was never released for purchase. There was an extremely limited quantity only given out at the opening, so we never shared the image. 🙁

  2. US Flag code:

    Ҥ176. Respect for flag
    No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

    (a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

    (g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.

    (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.”

    § 3. Use of flag for advertising purposes; mutilation of flag

    Metro is not being properly respectful of the flag.
