The prize for best website name I've seen in a while goes to Oh, L No!, a newish site that collects stories of the Chicago el. There are about a dozen so far, ranging from one person's recollection of a 2 AM striptease on the Red Line to a song (to the tune of the Folgers theme song): "The best part of waking up, is urine on the L." The stories can be sorted by el line, though there aren't enough yet to make sorting strictly necessary. You can also follow them on Twitter and participate in a poll on whether it should be spelled "L" or "el" (spoiler alert: "el" is currently winning).
