A Facebook buddy raised an interesting point, that I will use as today's launch.

He noted a recent rash of train derailments and accidents.


I'll have to check the statistics, but I do have a theory.

After the disaster in East Palestine, Ohio and the deadly collision in Greece, our ears perk up a little more when we hear about problems on the rails.  I'm not defending the rail industry.  Clearly, there is a lot of things that can be done better-- and safer.

It's like when you buy a new car.  You suddenly notice all the similar makes and models on the road.

As I said last week, this country cannot function without a safe and effective rail network.  It's time to learn from past mistakes.
