At VDARE. Where else?



"The Amtrak train that derailed in Philadelphia on Tuesday night was traveling at a speed twice the speed limit on that stretch of track, according to the National Transportation Safety Board."

There are cars now that can drive themselves. A train can't be made to operate without help from a human? Robocop. How about Robotrain?

Maybe we need to start arming trains, like those armored trains in World War II. After all, they're traveling through enemy territory.
