So Richard Branson, of Virgin Enterprises, has partnered with a commuter train operation in Florida. It seems to be going relatively well, with plans to expand the high speed service in other markets. He's even visited the States to take a ride on the Florida train.
There is just one problem, drunk, stoned impatient, and disturbed people are getting taken out by it at an elevated rate.
Branson's deal seems to be paying off for everyone and is a positive thing for the economy and commuters....but the mouth breathing headline writer focuses on deaths that are in no way the train or operator's fault?
The author, after writing:
" The majority have been suicides, while most others involved impatient motorists, pedestrians or bicyclists who misjudged the trains’ speed and ignored bells, gates or other warnings. Drugs, alcohol or both have been found in many victims’ systems."
"Why Brightline has so many deaths is unclear; other area railroads haven’t had nearly as many."
I think it's pretty obvious why there are more deaths on this particular train route. Don't you? When did we get this lazy? Has the demand for content driven people this loopy and inattentive to what they are even typing? I hope the author can concentrate enough to get across the street safely.
