Let's Not Build Anything Ever Again, Never Forget

“Now, if we have a more decentralized mass transit system using buses, if the terrorists blow up a single bus, we can work around that. When they blow up a rail, that just brings the system to a grinding halt. So how much security are we going to have on this rail system, and how much will it cost?”
 — That’s J.D. Van Brink, of the Georgia Tea Party, explaining why trains shouldn’t be built in the US of A. So, I guess the terrorists won? Also, I would like to report that I saw the movie Unstoppable recently, because I was sure the “runaway train” concept was just like an organizing idea or a plot device? NO. It is literally about a runaway train, and it is terrible, and boring, and annoyingly shot, and poorly edited. That is all. (via)
