Today’s Headlines: Friday’s Metrolink Crash


(Editor’s Note: After combing through literally hundreds of articles, I decided to post the links from LAist and the Bottleneck Blog.  Their combined stories cover the news from the crash completely.  The stories run chronologically with the earlier stories posted first.  Excellent work Steve, Zach, and the rest of the staff at LAist.)
